Agumbe Rainforest is a jungle field station on the Western Ghats escarpment of Karnataka, India. A sister project to the famous Crocodile Bank Zoo in Tamil Nadu, it is a hotspot for rainforest and reptile research. OE was fortunate to be able to establish a collaborative baseline forest biodiversity survey., which can be revisited in future times to gain understanding about the natural ecology.
- Please enjoy this small selection of images from a forest survey and treeclimbing class that was held at Agumbe Rainforest Research Station. The treeclimbing component was run by Tim “Tengu” Kover of the Pacific Treeclimbing Institute. Stay tuned as we work on posting more images from this and other Outreach Ecology projects.
