Your adventure will be assisted by your expert leader who is one of the most respected forest ecologists in the field, whose findings have been published internationally, leading to a greater understanding of how science can be used to help conserve forest ecosystems into the future. Reaching the canopies of these mighty trees, which can be in excess of 300ft tall, requires advanced rope-climbing skills, and all participants will be vetted to ensure they are not only able to keep up with the pace but be of value to the scientists.
Once in the canopies, the views across the forest are simply astounding – you will be genuinely lost for words, and feel a deep connection to nature as you appreciate the immensity of these organisms. Given the right conditions, climbers will spend the night in the trees, setting up portaledge platforms – this is usually done when collecting samples in the night, to provide contrasting data from the daytime. Climbers will wake up at 3 am and scale the trunks once more, this time under a starry sky – there aren’t many people in the world who are able to say they’ve been privy to such an exclusive and unique experience.
