More than two decades
studying the biggest primate of the Americans continents inside
the RPPN FMA has produced the most complete and detailed work about
their social behavior, reproducing habits, relation with habitat
and inner group interactions; all of these were performed using
a very simple and inadequate infrastructure.
Given the importance of these studies for the long term preservation
and hopefully repopulation of this endangered species, Preserve
Muriqui is looking for partners to build new facilities where it
will be able to host the next generation of researches.
With a beautifully designed project with the shape of a leaf, made
by the German architect Iris Hannevald, the new field Laboratory
for the Caratinga Biological Station is due to support the reserve’s
natural vocation for researches.
