Israel Dias de Carvalho is undertaking his Masters in Conservation Science with Alexandra at the UFRRJ University. He came to REGUA last year and spent a long time walking trails to survey the best points to place his collection of 10 camera traps. He is looking at the population estimation of medium and large mammals in a small area of the Atlantic Forest here at REGUA, testing the camera traps as part of a new research methodology. Even with a couple of camera losses he has been very successful at registering the presence of the Puma Puma concolor, Ocelot Leopardus pardalis, Collared Peccary Tayassu tajacu as well as South American Coati Nasua nasua, Tayra Eira barbara and possums. We wish him all the success.
