Ecuador & Peru (March 2018)
A group of our members are off exploring the flora and landscapes of Ecuador and Peru. The trip began in Ecuador on Monday 19th March. Their time in Peru will be in the Ancash region in the north, mostly to sites in the Cordillera Blanca. One of the plant species they’re hopeful to see is Nototriche coccinea, a red-flowered nototriche.
The explorers have already started sending back photos of their trip which we’ll be sharing below. Keep checking back for more exciting updates!
On Tuesday 20th, the group spent a quiet day in Quito (capital city of Ecuador) getting used to the higher altitude.
The Monumento a la Mitad del Mundo (Monument to the Equator) is situated 26km north of the centre of Quito. It's believed to mark the exact location of the Equator, but according to our team's GPS, it's 240 yards into the Southern Hemisphere!
