During the months of April, May and June we participated in the celebration of the 7th Anniversary of the Creation of the Oxapampa-Ashaninka-Yanesha Biosphere Reserve. The event was organized by the Municipality of Oxapampa and SERNANP and the Missouri Botanical Garden participated with the theme “Use and Monitoring of Terrestrial Fauna in the Reserve.” Our presentations were focused on the on the methodology of data collection with trap cameras according to TEAM protocols. We presented some images of the animals that had been captured by the trap cameras. These images prompted a lot of interest because many people were not aware of the diversity of animals that exist in Yanachaga-Chemillen National Park. Animals such as Bush dog (Speothos venaticus) and Big anteater or banderon (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), were the most striking.
