As you may already be aware, the Black-fronted Piping-guan Project,  aims to reintroduce this endangered species to REGUA.   Numbers were reduced as the species was threatened by habitat loss and poaching, but the protection that REGUA can now provide makes it an excellent place to start the reintroduction.

In Avistar you’ll get to know more about where the birds will be released, including REGUA, and all the details about the rehabilitation phase, which involves feeding, flight and predator recognition training.

You’ll also have the opportunity to learn everything about the planning of the monitoring phase and how to get involved.

The Project will be presented by its coordinator Alecsandra Tassoni on May 20th at 3 pm in Auditorium 1 (Instituto Butantan – Av. Vital Brasil, 1500. São Paulo/SP-Brazil).
