Challenge

Zoonotic diseases pose a severe threat to both wildlife and communities. With the Covid-19 pandemic underscoring the importance of research in this realm, our project addresses the specific challenge of antibiotic-resistant pathogens in the vital waterways shared by endangered pink dolphins and giant river otters.

Solution

Scientist Luisa Gabriela Diaz is at the forefront, conducting a comprehensive 14-week study focusing on El Jaguar Nature Reserve. By analyzing antibiotic-resistant pathogens, Luisa's work provides crucial insights into the health of these endangered species and the potential transmission risks to surrounding communities.

Long-Term Impact

Your support for this project ensures a lasting impact on both wildlife and communities. Luisa's holistic approach recognizes the interconnectedness of environmental and human health. The workshops she plans for women and schoolchildren foster community engagement and education, empowering them to actively contribute to conservation efforts. By conducting the first microbiology study in the region, this project lays the foundation for informed action, addressing pollution and fishing practices.
