Arembepe, BA

Below are a few photos of Tamar’s environmental education center (adjacent to their research facilities) in Arembepe, BA.  Tamar’s outreach program in this community are oriented towards kids that have been deemed to be at “high social risk” due to the prevalence of drugs and domestic violence in their community.  The team of teachers at Tamar’s education center is made up of visiting biological research interns and a couple guys from the local community who started working Tamar when they were young.

Also pictured is international celebrity Mr. Leatherback posing with American guitarist Stanley Jordan, who was also visiting Tamar doing research.
