Rio Japurá, Brazil
Expedition Overview

Travel by boat up the Rio Japurá with ornithologists John Bates, Jason Weckstein, and Alexandre Aleixo as they catalog breathtaking bird life along the banks of one of Brazil’s remote rivers. You’ll discover how their work is redefining diversity in Amazonia and reshaping traditional conservation boundaries by identifying new Areas of Endemism—regions that harbor species found nowhere else in the world.
