Land Purchase and construction of a research station

We are extremely exited to announce that FCAT purchased 164ha of primary forest for conservation inside the Reserva Mache-Chindul (Mache-Chindul Reserve)!! Untitled

The reserve has a lek of the long-wattled umbrellabird, along with many other endangered species of bird and primate. We started building a scientific station that will support our local community engaged research project and also national and international researchers and students. We expect to have this ready by June 2019, everyone is welcome to visit and collaborate with our projects!

On August 17th at midday  we will have a big welcome party to everyone interested in coming!
