Collecting with Ian Fuller - 18 November to 4 December 2017

26 September 2016

We had a cancelation due to medical conditions on the November 2017 collecting trip. Regretably, I can't take the open slot due to Thanksgiving in the United States.

This means there is an open slot on the trip for anyone interested in joining Ian for two plus weeks of very interesting collecting in the Madre de Dios with a trip into the Andean foothills to explore new areas. 

Please send an email to if interested in special pricing for this last slot on this trip.

GoWildPeru encourages Aquarium Society groups and others to charter open dates on the calendar. The advantage is that GWP can arrange shipping of fish collected to the nearest USF&WS port of entry for the entire group as opposed to trans-shipping through an east coast airport. A minimum of four participants is required for a charter.
