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

Help Required


There's always too much to do, and far too few resources to do it.  The Reserve is still a new project, but it's already making a significant difference to the fates of a growing diversity of threatened species.  If you can help, then there's an exciting and rewarding opportunity for you here.
We are always looking for volunteers and have build a new cabana to house up to 4 people at a time.  We have 3 projects that are either ongoing or we hope to start during the spring and require volunteers to help us with the research.  1).  Study of the breeding habits of Alectrurus risora including monitoring of their nests.  We plan to ring the juveniles in the nest with coloured rings and also do some mist-netting of the adults.  2).  Start a breeding program for a pair of Crax fasciolata including incubation of eggs  3).  Continue with our bat research at the reserve and local areas.
If you feel interested in our projects and would like to volunteer please contact us at:

Please bear in mind that you will be expected to help out with whatever is needed at the time and that we do have more than our fair share of insects, including mosquitoes and Deer flies.  The sun can be very fierce, even in September, and temperatures can be high. We would expect volunteers to stay for a month minimum.  Anti rabies vaccinations are essential if you wish to handle bats.

Below are some of our recent volunteers: Alex Roberts, Ed Marray, Cassie Horton, Abel Yunis, Sergio Ramirez, Arturo Roselli, Sebastian Navajo, Edith Villordo, James Crees, Alex Buxton, Florencia, Sebastian Santiago, Martin Oporto, Lucila Amato, Martin Rizzo, Melina, Valeria, Fede, Maria, Beatriz, Gustavo
