Environmental conservation efforts in the Andean Amazon prove fruitful

Nearly one year ago, FIU embarked on an international effort to support environmental conservation efforts in the Andean Amazon region of South America.

Awarded a nearly $750,000 grant by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) through Higher Education for Development, FIU partnered with the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana and the Universidad de la Amazonia to develop a research collaboration network in Colombia. The network also included Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden(Miami), the Field Museum of Natural History (Chicago), and Instituto de Investigación de Recursos Biológicos Alexander von Humboldt (Colombia).
