Melbourne, Australia’s Herald-Sun reports on a treetop walk under development for the Amazon:
“The $10 million site will serve as a meeting point for scientists from the Royal Botanic Gardens and universities, as well as a tourist attraction, The (London) Sunday Times reported.
“It will also provide jobs for local Brazilian tribes who will take an estimated two years to construct the centre and walkway in Roraima, an isolated province in northeast Brazil.
“‘This will be the first scientific research center to be built in the jungle proper,’ Robert Pasley-Tyler, from the Amazon Charitable Trust, which is backing the scheme, said.
“The site will be designed by Marks Barfield Architects, the firm behind the London Eye and the treetops walkway in the UK’s Royal Botanic Gardens.”
