Geo Specialists, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement
of science and conservation is seeking participants for an upcoming
expedition to the Mountains of One Thousand Caves region of West
Sumatra, Indonesia.  The area is a pristine, primary rainforest abundant
in wildlife.  

This five week expedition will leave June 18, 2000 and involves tropical
rainforest and cave exploration, field camping and data recovery. 
Participants will be expected to partake in all aspects of this
expedition, and is an excellent opportunity for individual field
research.  Site location is in a remote and inhospitable jungle
environment.  Applicants should be in decent physical condition and be
able to withstand some discomforts.  People with earth science or caving
backgrounds encouraged to apply.  Involvement is subject to Geo
Specialists approval and a $4,000 all inclusive, tax deductible
donation (includes r/t airfare, ground transportation, food, lodging,
gear, porters, medic, etc).  

Catch us in September 1998's National Geographic (Borneo's White
Mountain) and currently on the Outdoor Life Channel's Adventure Quest
Series.  Currently, NOVA has expressed interest in our Sumatra
expedition and will possibly join us for the creation of a documentary
on PBS television.  For more information about Geo Specialists and the
Sumatra 2000 expedition visit us at http://www.guts.net  or contact us
