Help safeguard the future of Amazonian primates! W4C Researcher Yenni Paola Caicedo Cardenas is conducting a vital analysis of connectivity and biological corridors for Lagothrix lagothricha lugens (Colombian Woolly Monkey) and Aotus brumbacki (Brumback's Night Monkey) in El Jaguar Reserve. Your support propels us towards conservation solutions that ensure their survival.
Rapid habitat loss and rainforest fragmentation endanger Amazonian primates. Without understanding and preserving their connectivity corridors, species like the Colombian Wooly Monkey (Critically endangered) and Brumback's Night Monkey (Vulnerable) face heightened threats from human encroachment.
Our project employs advanced geospatial analysis to model functional connectivity. We'll identify and propose key biological corridors vital for the Colombian Wooly Monkey and Brumback's Night Monkey. By comparing these corridors with existing conservation zones, we're ensuring effective protection. Additionally, our replicable methodology sets the stage for broader conservation efforts, creating a ripple effect for biodiversity protection. Join us in preserving the heart of the Amazon!
This Amazon Rainforest Field Station will lead to a significant reduction in wildlife poaching and habitat degradation within the El Jaguar Nature Reserve. By providing essential resources and training to women scientists, we are fostering a new generation of environmental leaders who will play a pivotal role in the long-term protection of Colombia's invaluable biodiversity. This project sets the stage for sustainable conservation efforts and strengthens bonds between local communities & nature.
