Strange Tails

We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust

Candid Camera

Our camera traps provide us with the opportunity to capture images of wildlife at their most relaxed, far from man-made disturbance.

The cameras have been in place since September 2010.  They're usually installed about 1m high on a tree trunk or post and angled slightly downward. We choose locations where the animals come to feed, drink or bathe, so they're typically around bodies of water, marsh areas, forests and forest margins.

The results vary considerably, and few of them are either perfectly exposed or thoughtfully composed.  But we find them absolutely magical; they give us the chance to see the shyest, most secretive of our guests in their natural environment and behaviour.

In September 2012 we finally captured the first image of the Maned Wolf at our reserve and since then we have had several more. We also have several pictures of the neotropical otter as well as a male, female and juvenile Grey Brocket deer. There are also some images taken with the camera traps we've loaned to the giant anteater project. They have  pumas and giant anteaters which we do not have at Don Luis (yet!).

Last year we found a Desmodus rotundus bat roost in one of our trees in Monte Grande.  We put up a camera trap here and have had some excellent results.
