Welcome to the heart of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest...ACTS (Amazon Conservatory for Tropical Studies).
Located in one of the most biologically diverse forests in the world, ACTS serves as an open laboratory for tropical research, educational initiatives, workshops, and sustainable development projects. The ACTS Field Station and Canopy Walkway are located within a 250,000-acre preserve of primary tropical rainforest in the upper Amazon basin of northeast Peru.
ACTS has one of the longest canopy walkway systems in the world, extending horizontally 500 meters throughout the tree-tops and reaching a maximum height of nearly 35 meters. This system of aerial platforms and pathways allows scientists, educators, and students to observe and study previously inaccessible parts of the rainforest.https://actsperu.wordpress.com/
