Exploring the Amazon rainforest

The TGS classes of 2014 and 2015 will forever remember the color of the Tiputini river that snakes through Yasuní National Park, the sound of a rainforest storm, and the squish of the nutrient-rich, clay-like dirt on the floor of this ecosystem. For four days, THINK Global School experienced the learning potential of a remote research station in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Being the first high school group to visit Tiputini Biodiversity Station, it was a real honor to meander the hiking trails with expert guides, observing the most biodiverse ecosystem in the world.
