The Peru Project

Project Goals

The Center’s team had two main goals:

  1. To establish a baseline of scientific data on water quality, stream biodiversity, and stream health that would serve as the foundation for understanding and sustaining on-going conservation efforts in the region
  2. To create, test, and implement accessible, easy-to-use, and inexpensive education programs for the people of the region.

Project Outputs

The project promised three major outputs:

  1. The field and laboratory effort sought to test and deploy protocols for measuring and monitoring health in neo-tropical streams
  2. The scientific findings would provide the basis for creating and offering training workshops for monitoring biophysical properties of streams and rivers in neotropical regions
  3. Stroud Water Research Center would disseminate training workshop and monitoring research information as broadly as possible.

Specifically, we sought to:
