FCAT reserve expands by 42 ha

With generous support from the Fondo Internacional de Conservación de Canadá and private donors, FCAT has recently acquired an additional 42 ha of land that positions the FCAT reserve as one of the largest continuous forest reserves in the region. The property, which contains a lek of the Long-wattled Umbrellabird, was recently deforested and is now protected from further degradation in perpetuity.

FCAT will use the property as a hub of reforestation and research efforts. Stay tuned for more information about our plans for reforesting the site in future updates!
