Écovolontariat au Perou : Rapport mensuel
Rapport mensuel à partir de 2018 (en anglais)
We have done it! After 17 years of ongoing research we have identified the 500th species of bird for the Taricaya reserve and, unbelievably, three more were soon to follow thus bringing our total bird list to 503 species. This represents about 5% of all the known species of bird on the planet. In other words, in our relatively tiny area, one of every twenty birds known to man can be found!! If that was not exciting enough we also found a new species of bat and two new species of frog. You would be forgiven for asking how we made so many discoveries in quick succession. The answer is lots of volunteers!!!
It is hard to believe that another year is upon us but 2018 looks to hold plenty of promise for our long standing conservation project deep in the Peruvian Amazon. In January we received our first large group of the year and the extra hands were greatly appreciated as we were able to get a lot done and keep to our demanding schedule. Volunteers and staff alike have been hard at work around the rescue centre, out in the forest and at our farm plot.
