We continue to support the Peruvian wildlife authorities in the fight against trafficking. We hosted, together with personnel from the Forest and Wildlife Management Unit of the Regional Environmental Authority of San Martín, a workshop on “Urban Wildlife Management” for police. In Pucallpa, Peru’s second largest Amazonian city, we have also been giving classes and workshops in schools in the city and outlying rural areas, as well as the National University.
We helped the authorities in northern Peru with the rescue and care of a baby Critically Endangered San Martin titi monkey, young woolly and spider monkeys, two capuchin monkeys, a sloth, a crab-eating raccoon, and four opossums. Also, congratulations to Edgar Poémape for defending his thesis on “Social perceptions and wildlife trafficking incidents in San Martin, Peru” at San Martin University.
