ALVARO AND NATUSHA - AMAZON FIELD VOLUNTEERS

by Center for Amazon Community Ecology April 25, 2018

ALVARO AND NATUSHA - AMAZON FIELD VOLUNTEERS I had been in Peru for just over a week when I got a message via Facebook Messenger from Alvaro De Ramon Murillo saying that he and his partner Natusha Croes were on an extended trip through South America. He asked if I could tell them a way they could visit a native community off the normal tourist track. I wasn't sure what to think at first, but after many conversations via Messenger, Email and eventually in person, I invited them to join us for a 5 day trip to the Ampiyacu knowing that they would be able to take high quality photos and videos of our mission with Camino Verde to plant rosewood trees in the Bora native villages of Brillo Nuevo and Ancon Colonia.

It was their first trip visiting a village in the rainforest, but in spite of bugs, rain, technical challenges, and Alvaro's ninja photographer look, they collected some awesome sights and sounds of our work and made fast friends with many kids in the village. I will share some of Alvaro's great portraits of children with animals when I figure out how to open .ARW images on my PC.

They are now back in Spain preparing for school, exhibits and performances.
