A few hints: This country is inhabited by the largest number of bird species in the world and the third largest number of mammals. It has also been referred to as one of the most biologically diverse places on earth.

Still stumped? The Peruvian Amazon!

Below you will find some pictures from the first few days of their trip, taken by Dr. Eric J. Simon, associate professor of biology at NEC. To follow Dr. Simon and the rest of his students on their Peruvian adventures, please visit his blog at
