As a member of Wired Amazon, you can earn Travel Credits that can be redeemed for a discounted stay at any one of our three lodges during Science Season.
Currently, we have one live Wired Amazon project: Aerobotany.
To earn Travel Credits via the Aerobotany project, you will examine images of the rainforest canopy that we’ve uploaded to The Zooniverse citizen science platform, and circle the crowns of all flowering, leafless and distinct trees that you spot. The instructions are easy to follow, and examples are provided as well - you'll get the hang of it quickly, and it takes less than a minute to process an image. For each image you process, you’ll earn $1 in Travel Credits.
Each person can earn up to $300 travel credits. That means that in a family of four, each person can earn up to $300 for a possible discount of $1200 off your family vacation!
To redeem your travel credits, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you’d like to redeem your travel credits (it is critical that you include your Zooniverse username, as that is the only way we can track how many travel credits you have earned). You’ll need to include the dates you’d like to travel (remember, Science Season is from March 1st to March 31st 2017 and March 1st to March 31st, 2018).
