Announcing: Brack Egg Scholarship Recipients for 2015

We are honored to present the Brack Egg Scholarship to two recipients this year – Ramón Aguilar Manihuari from Iquitos, Loreto, and Areli Benito from Lima.

Each student presented a 1000-word essay in English on the following topic:

What is your opinion of Brack Egg’s attempts to legalize gold mining – how successful have they been, and what more could be done to improve them ?

Ramón Aguilar Manihuari

Ramón is a student of Biological Sciences at UNAP, and he volunteered at IIAP where he learned about the biodiversity of Perú. He really likes working with animals, but he has a special soft spot for reptiles and amphibians. We guarantee he will not be disappointed!

Areli Benito

Since her first years of undergraduate work, Areli has worked on the diversity and ecology of amphibians and reptiles. She is interested in studying the interactions between habitat and herpetofauna in tropical rainforests.
Currently, she is working on acquiring her licenciatura to achieve the level of “biologist” in Peru, and is conducting research on leaf litter frog ecology in the Madre de Dios on an Amazon Conservation Association Scholarship.
