Last year I spent three weeks with an incredible team of scientists exploring the Tapiche-Blanco watersheds, a remote region in the Peruvian Amazon. Our team was about 200 kilometers from any of the nearest cities--Iquitos, Pucallpa, and Tarapoto--and 40 kilometers from the border with Brazil. The trip was filled with discoveries (three new plants, four new fishes, four new frogs, a savanna habitat none of us expected in this part of Peru) but the biggest discovery was a mystery monkey.
Climate change is impacting birds across the world as seasons shift. Now, though, scientists have taken a closer look at the white-collared manakin and have found that habitat degradation and climate shifts may impact this species survival.

Mainstream climatologists predict a 15% fall in rainfall over the Amazon if it is stripped of its rainforest. But the 'biotic pump' theory, rooted in conventional physics and recently confirmed by experiment, shows that the interior of a forest-free Amazon will be as dry as the Negev desert. We must save the Amazon before it enters a permanent and irreversible dessication.
In the Brazilian Amazon, conservation efforts have led to a resurgence of the Pirarucu, one of the largest freshwater fish in the world.
Amazon Rainforest Workshops's insight:
Glad to share some good news from the Amazon. Conservation in partnership with local people works! The Pirarucu (aka arapaina), the largest fish in the Amazon is making a comeback in Brazil. Added bonus: this was on the front page of the NYT digital edition on 3/3/15.
