Aqua Expeditions Introduces On-Board Lectures About the Ecosystems of the Peruvian Amazon

Aqua Expeditions now offers guests three new on-board lectures: “Local Communities and Natural Resources in the Peruvian Amazon,” “Amazonian Fauna and Flora” and “Amazonian Fish.” The lectures have been created by Aqua’s resident biologist for guests looking to gain deeper knowledge about the region and its ecosystems. Each lecture is presented once per journey in English or Spanish and takes place during happy hour on the vessel’s air-conditioned top deck lounge.  Guests can enjoy a Camu Camu Sour while learning about the many species that inhabit the Peruvian Amazon and Aqua’s responsible practices.

Amazonian Fauna and Flora

This lecture talks about the different species found in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, in which the MV Aqua sails, and explains the roles they play in the ecosystem, the threats they face and how Aqua Expeditions supports their conservation and development.

Amazonian Fish
This talk focuses on Peru’s fish community, with special emphasis on species found in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, the role the fish population plays in the local ecosystem and how Aqua Expeditions supports their conservation.

Local Communities and Management of Natural Resources in the Peruvian Amazon
This lecture discusses facts about the communities living within the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, how they interact with their local ecosystems and how Aqua Expeditions is helping them preserve the Peruvian Amazon.
