Few places on the planet are as mysterious and awe-inspiring as the Amazon jungle. Join naturalist and explorer Paul Rosolie of Tamandua Expeditions for an interactive report from the field - rare wildlife, new-to-science ecosystems, uncontacted tribes, and how you can go where few ever have. Paul will discuss his past experiences leading groups, his solo treks deep into the jungle, and give ground level perspective of the conservation effort in the Amazon Rainforest. Learn what is needed to protect our planet's most important biome.
