Eduardo Nycander founded Rainforest Expeditions after joining an expedition organized by the Wildlife Conservation Society to the little known Colorado clay lick in the Tambopata River. As a wildlife photographer, he was awed by the massive clay lick and the incredible number and varieties of parrots that visited it. Concerned with their protection, he identified a sizable patch of pristine forest near the clay lick, to build a research center, protecting it from the threats of illegal hunting of macaws. This also included an application for a 10,000 hectare forestry concession, to legally protect as large an area as possible. In 1990 the Tambopata Research Center was completed and Tambopata Nature Tours followed soon after. The company has grown from there to include 3 additional lodges and many adventures.
