Scientists, technicians, and educators from the Stroud Center, along with
collaborators from Florida A&M University and Peru, made several trips to the Andes-Amazon
region in 2006 in support of the Moore Foundation’s conservation efforts. The teams had two
main goals: (1) to create a baseline of scientific data on water quality, stream biodiversity, and
stream health that will serve as the foundation for understanding and sustaining on-going
conservation efforts in the region; and (2) to craft, test, and implement accessible, easy-to-use,
and inexpensive education programs for the people of the region.


Funding for the Peru Project was provided by a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
