While on the expedition you can expect to stay aboard one of the historical riverboats, the Rio Amazonas, Clavero or Pithacia that are large 100 year old boats from the rubber boom period in the Amazon restored by FundAmazonia. Accommodation is fairly comfortable for a research site in the Amazon. You can expect to stay in a dorm style room with bunkbeds and an en-suite bathroom with a toilet and refreshingly cool showers. During the expedition, the research boats will be moored on the Yarapa river and you will be working off the boat in small boats going through the flooded forests to the terra firma areas or working up and down the river and in side channels from the small boats.
