After two weeks in the Amazon rainforest, the Mato Grosso region and two days of marine research in the South Atlantic, the 16-strong team arrived back in Europe on 9th May 2009. In these two weeks of aquarium and terrarium research, teamwork and experiencing nature first-hand, a wealth of experiences were collected, observations noted, water analyses carried out and thousands of photos stored on film and memory cards. For the first time freshwater stingray could be photographed and observed underwater. And a new species of catfish was even discovered (precise identification still to be made). Detailed reports on the individual stages of the JBL Expedition can be found in the following files:
