Our research projects:

WILDLIFE MONITORING

In partnership with

CECCOT

ABOUT WILDLIFE MONITORING WITH TRAP CAMERAS
This method of evaluation consists in the use of trap cameras as an instrument to obtain information about the fauna composition of an area. This allows us to obtain permanent records (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) at all points of interest. Being the least invasive monitoring method, it allows us to observe even species that are difficult to record with other monitoring methods.
ABOUT CECCOT
The Tambopata Center for Education, Science and Conservation (CECCOT acronym in Spanish) is a non-profit non-governmental organization established in Madre de Dios, Peru. CECCOT’s mission is to promote Amazonian biodiversity conservation and research, and to offer training opportunities for ecological research and sustainable livelihoods in the Peruvian Amazonia, in particular 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 surrounding the Hacienda Herrera. As the project develops we will also monitor populations over time, in particular by observing their eating habits, habitat use and preference and breeding season. This will allow us to develop appropriate management strategies for the registered species.
