Wildlife | Biodiversity Research and Conservation by Fauna Forever
1Fauna Forever’s research teams have been collecting species data in Peru’s Madre de Dios region since 1997. As part of this work, we are identifying, researching and reducing human impacts on wildlife in the region. We share our data freely with land owners, policy makers, NGOs and businesses to encourage everyone to take a stake in conserving this crucial area.
2Fauna Forever has trained and encouraged over 300 volunteers and interns from over 30 countries worldwide. We run environmental education programs at local schools and advanced wildlife research training in the field. We are teaching, motivating and inspiring the next generation of Neotropical ecologists, scientists and conservationists.
3Fauna Forever is committed to protecting the Madre de Dios forests and their spectacular biological diversity. We meet our commitments by collaborating with the private, government and voluntary sectors, by compiling and sharing information, and by directly conserving wide expanses of land in this hugely important part of the world.

Photo: This jaguar was spotted by Fauna Forever volunteers as they were heading up the Las Piedras River. The Jaguar was busy watching some wallowing capybara and unfortunately the capybara fled without much action from the jaguar. We think the male was relatively uninterested because of the midday heat and his rather full-looking belly.
