New Century College faculty member German Perilla began his journey to the Colombian Andes and the Peruvian Amazon on July 9, 2013. He will return on August 23, 2013. “In Colombia, I will be training to work with the genera Trigonas and Meliponas—stingless tropical honey bees—learning how to translocate them from nature to apiaries and hives,“ German says. “I will be working with the Chino Community in Tahuayo to develop a social entrepreneurship bee keeping program that preserves the Chinos’ self-sustaining Amazonian livelihood.”
