data collection

Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation has connected the trio with scientists seeking data collection from remote areas along the Andes. The trio will be working on the following projects throughout their journey:

Biodiversity Project for the Pacific Biodiversity Institute - We will collect data on flora, fauna, ecology, archeology, culture and other characteristics of wildlands in South America through photographs, GPS coordinates and notes. Our project is described further here.

Peter Morrison, the scientist we are working with, also happens to be a Cheley alum. Small world!

Lupins Project for the Washington State University at Vancouver - We will collect photographs, GPS coordinates, notes and seed pods of Lupinus Lepidus, a plant that can grow in disturbed or low-nutrient areas (such as near recent volcanic activity).
