Camera Trap Photos from Pabloyacu Reforestation Site

We’ve had some great camera trap photos lately, this time from Pabloyacu, Moyobamba. This is the site where we are starting reforestation work with the Universidad Nacional de San Martín.

The camera traps are part of our effort to get baseline information on species diversity and abundance in the area, for comparisons with future monitoring to see what impact reforestation has on local wildlife.

The star of the show for us this time is the Tamandua (ant eater)! It’s also really great to see peccaries, these species show that although the area is very near to the city and heavily impacted, hunting pressure is low.

New Seeds Bring Hope to Reforestation Project

Thousands of new seeds have arrived to the tree nurseries in Uchiza, San Martin. Great work by the local Bosques del Sinaí association in their reforestation work that we are supporting. Also, the reforestation work in Simacache continues with many new seedlings almost ready for transplanting to the deforested areas.

Planting for the Future

Our native species reforestation efforts with local communities continue. The local community groups protecting the Gran Simacache and Bosques de Sinaí Conservation Concessions each have new tree nurseries producing local species to be given for free to farmers in the buffer zones of the concessions and to reforest degraded areas of the reserves, we will continue to update you on progress of this work as the trees grow and mature.
