Conservation of Podocnemis expansa and Podocnemis unifilis turtles in the region of Bananal Island.
The project seeks to analyze and understand the reproductive behavior of these turtle species. For this, a demonstration unit in the Canguçu Research Center was established to support the project’s conservation objectives and environmental education.
A 200,000 ha area of tropical forest has been preserved, in partnership with IBAMA, Naturatins and FUNAI, and two private reserves have been established. For this project, the Institute has also partnered with the Earthwatch Institute and the Federal University of Tocantins.
