A very special episode for me this week as we go to Peru, travelling to the Manu Biosphere Reserve to talk to Quinn Meyer, founder of the CREES foundation. I volunteered with CREES way back in 2009, and it was a trip that changed my life and has left a lasting impression. Quinn is a social anthropologist with an entrepreneurial streak. After volunteering around the Manu Biosphere area he fell in love with and bought some land and the dream that CREES would become began. Opening officially in 2005 the Manu Learning Centre (MLC) has seen over 13,000 visitors! The data that has been collected has shed new light, not just on biodiversity numbers of regenerated jungle species, but also opened some eyes to how nature has learnt to adapt to the ever pressing presence of humans. A static monitoring base for Amazon conservation for the over a decade has given CREES an immense data set to study and from this some amazing news is in the works.
