Schools in the Cotahuasi Area of Peru Take Learning Outdoors
Schools from the Cotahuasi area have had environmental educational camping trips with 70 GLOBE club participants every spring, over the past 5 years. Each year has an emphasis area. This year, the focus was on the habitat of an amazing cactus Puya Raimondi. Students were organized into study groups to measure and document; weather, clouds, land cover, water quality and bird sighting and habitat. The giant Puya Raimondi cacti grows up to 4 meters in height and are rare and endangered due to habitat loss. The cactus produces flowers once every 80-100 years, and then dies. The flowers provide nectar to a wide variety of birds and insects; including the Giant Hummingbird.  >>
