Created in 2006 by science journalist Paola Catapano, MINIDARWIN aims at taking groups of children on scientific expeditions coached by real scientists and science communication professionals.

On the occasion of International Year of Biodiversity 2010, theMiniDarwins are ready to leave on their third expedition, to the Amazon Forest, devoted to biodiversity and its socio-economic spin offs. The MiniDarwins will be coached by biodiversity scientists and an ecological socio-economist specialised in ethno-ecology to experience life with an Indigenous population in the Amazon Forest

During the trip, we will publish on this blog a diary of the expedition and some of the photos, videos, interviews and texts we are producing for later publication on our website, book, reportage and documentary film.

On our way to Mamiraua..

Tefe, 6 Aug 2010

This chaotic lively village on the banks of the Amazon river is our last contact with civilization for the next week. Until Friday August 13 we are going to be unreacheable by phone and mail.. since the Mamirau√° reserve is deep in the rainforest and only communicates via radio with the Tefe office. No more updates on the blog till then! We invite you to go through all previous posts that we have just updated with more text and photos.
