About project

This evaluation method consists of the use of camera traps as an instrument to obtain information on the faunal composition of the area. This allows us to obtain permanent records (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) at all points of interest. Being the least impact monitoring method, it allows us to observe even species that turn out to be difficult to record with other evaluation methods.


The Tambopata Education, Science and Conservation Center (CECCOT) is a non-profit organization established in the Madre de Dios region, Peru. CECCOT's mission is to promote the conservation of natural resources, research into biological biodiversity and also provide training opportunities in ecological research techniques and sustainable lifestyles in the Amazon of southeastern Peru, especially in the Madre de Dios region.

Project description

The objective of the project is to create a registry of the species that inhabit the primary and secondary forest around Hacienda Herrera. Likewise, evaluate the trend of populations over time, particularly observing dietary habits, habitat use and preference, and reproductive season. This will allow us to develop appropriate strategies for the management of registered species.

Researcher contribution

• Choose the location of the space to place the camera traps. • Take georeference points of the trails and create a map that can be used for project monitoring. • Install the camera traps. • Change memory cards and batteries. • Process data about registered species. • Prepare reports and contribute to the species registry.

Benefits for the researcher

• Strengthen knowledge on wildlife monitoring issues. • Possibility of developing your own project in coordination with CECCOT. • Use of all project field materials. • Granting a certificate of participation in the project.
