"Currently, I’m spenfing six months volunteering as a Resident Naturalist at an Eco-lodge in the southeastern rainforest of Peru. It’s incredible to say the least. I spend most of my time exploring the jungle, and am responsible for helping visiting researchers with their projects, leading and teaching tourists, and monitoring populations of giant river otters, caiman, parrots and macaws."
