Online Interactive Journey to Colombian Amazon Celebrates World Wildlife Day and Sustaining All Life
Celebrate World Wildlife Day with a journey through the Colombian Amazon.
Two new chapters have been added to this online story map that explores the magical landscapes and indigenous cultures of the Colombian Amazon through the travels of the legendary ethnobotanist Richard Evans Schultes.
A Harvard professor, scientist, explorer, writer, and photographer, Schultes spent over a decade immersed in near-continuous fieldwork, collecting more than 24,000 species of plants, including some 300 species new to science. He helped us understand the Amazon rainforest flora bringing us a wealth of knowledge about its potent medicinal and shamanic plants.
ACT and the Embassy of Colombia will soon host a private event to inspire students to learn about indigenous communities and traditions and to care about protecting the Amazon rainforest and its peoples.
