Reptile and Amphibian Ecology International is a conservation and research organization striving to discover, document, and preserve the rich diversity of living reptiles and amphibians. Guided by strong scientific principles, we collect ecological data about these unsung species in some of the world's last wild places. Through spectacular photography, we scientifically document our discoveries while conveying the beauty and wonder of rare species and remote places to a wider public. Through education, volunteerism, and local empowerment, we offer people the experiences, skills, and tools to promote understanding and appreciation of the rich variety of life that surrounds and sustains them. Our central goal is to facilitate informed management decisions by people, governments, and land preservation organizations that will protect these fascinating animals and the land they need to survive.
Our Ecuador research program is open for participation by volunteers, students, and interns with a great enthusiasm for the subject, a solid work ethic, and the ability to work 10-16 hour days in remote, muddy, areas. This year's expeditions will be going to Rio Bigal in the Amazon Rainforest, from May 21-30 and June 1-10, 2010.
