Operation Wallacea is a research and environmental organisation, working alongside university and college academics to build long term datasets to put towards various conservation management goals. We recruit volunteers to help out with the data collection, and train them in the skills and background that's needed to help effectively.
This expedition takes place in the remote indigenous community of Warapoka, located in Guyana’s Region One. The Opwall project here is very much a true expedition, traveling through the forest collecting scientific data, in an area virtually undisturbed by man. Volunteers spend the first week or so in the base camp, followed by three weeks of canoes, forest, rough terrain and pitching camp every night, while doing surveys on a number of different aspects, such as herpetofauna, birds or mammals.
