Mientras que las artesanas de Jenaro Herrera se han centrado en tejer adornos de insectos para CECAMA, han encontrado la inspiración para un adorno y un poco de ingresos adicionales de una rana. Dora atrapó una rana de tamaño medio que era de color verde en la parte superior con un hermoso mosaico de camuflaje de manchas blancas, naranja y marrón en su parte inferior y los dedos del pie. Doilith estaba haciendo un molde de cartón de la rana como un modelo para hacer un adorno, mientras que Dora raspó el limo fuera de su vuelta a tres palitos que fue planeado vender a un hombre en Iquitos que iba a utilizar en una ceremonia de curación. Ella relató que este proceso aparentemente involucrado quemar la piel del paciente con un cigarrillo y luego poner una pequeña cantidad de la baba de la rana en la herida. Comprobación en línea, encontré que su amigo anfibio aparentemente se llama una rana verde de la hoja - presumiblemente Phyllomedusa bicolor. Es la fuente de una medicina tradicional chamánica potente llamado ibogaína. Me alegré al saber que Dora estaba preparando el lanzamiento de la rana de nuevo a su hábitat natural al día siguiente.

Please join our Amazon roadshow this September at the Rhythm and Roots Festival at Ninigret Park for three days of music and fun. CACE will have a big booth to sell our innovative fair-trade handicrafts made by our partner artisans from Peru and offer visitors a rich interactive educational experience of the Amazon rainforest and its people.

CACE needs a few energetic volunteers to help us set up the booth on Thursday as well to pack up on Sunday night. We would also like to recruit a few Amazon Ambassadors to help us sell crafts and welcome booth visitors to check out our videos and engage with our Amazon education activities during the festival.

We have one or extra free vendor passes to the festival that we can share with volunteers who help us for several days or more. All volunteers who help us for a full day or more will get a 20% discount on merchandise at our booth and a free Amazon Forest Store baseball cap as a gesture of our appreciation.
