Alexander Wetmore - Photo Album, Venezuela, 1954
About the Project
If you wanted to conduct a study on the wildlife of Venezuela, where would you start? Former Smithsonian Secretary and ornithologist Alexander Wetmore's field exploration began with the Amazonas territory--a state in Venezuela that covers nearly a fifth of the country's area, but with only one percent of its population.
This album depicts Wetmore's trip through the Amazonas territory and its vast natural resources--including its many rivers, caves, and summits. Explore Venezuela's rich environment with Alexander Wetmore and help transcribe the image captions from his album!
(Formatting Note: No need to describe image placement on the page! Please use [[image]] on the first line to indicate a photo, followed by a second line with the caption, and a third with the date.)
