We continue with the research work at Copal. On this occasion we made the transfer of bowling from one tree to another at the Centro de Investigaciones de Jenaro Herrera (CIJH) run by Instituto de Investigación de la Amazonia Peruana (IIAP).

The action of a weevil, a member of the beetle family (Coleoptera), is normally responsible for the formation of resin masses in these trees. The process begins when a female places her egg inside the cortex. When hatching, the larva eats the inner crust and causes the liquid resin to escape into the outer crust which is known as a bolus.

The objective of this research is to know the adaptation and survival of the weevil by changing it, observing the results over time.

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.
