Monthly Updates from 2005

TARICAYA RESEARCH CENTRE: November 2005

November has seen Taricaya particularly active compared to previous years as there has been a relatively large number of volunteers and we have been able to accomplish a lot and keep our momentum going. Work this month has included the continuation of the new reserve-border trails, new additions to the animal release program, work at the pilot farm and trail maintenance ...

TARICAYA RESEARCH CENTRE: October 2005

Yet another month has flown by and here I am again reporting the latest goings on in the Peruvian rainforest. October has been a month for consolidating many projects and preparing ourselves for the imminent wet season. It has started to rain more regularly and the river has now risen to cover the dam causing us to remove the wheel and pump until the levels drop again next May ...

TARICAYA RESEARCH CENTRE: September 2005

The time has come again to bring you up to date with the latest goings on at Taricaya and as usual there is so much to report it is hard to know where to start. September had several successes that saw us finish the first phase of the bird monitoring project; receive some new residents in the animal release program; continue to make improvements at the farm and observation walks gave us some truly amazing sightings ...

TARICAYA RESEARCH CENTRE: August 2005

As I mentioned in my previous report, August was to be dedicated to two specific projects; the continuation of the bird monitoring project and the turtle project. I have spoken at length about the bird monitoring project in previous reports and so would like to take this opportunity to outline our turtle project and the improvements we have made from last year's research ...

TARICAYA RESEARCH CENTRE: July 2005

The month of July has flown by incredibly fast as both staff and volunteers alike have been busy. I am pleased to report that the bird monitoring project is continuing to produce some fascinating finds. I take the volunteers out to the mist nets where we spend the day checking for captures; identifying new species and tagging all the individuals.

TARICAYA RESEARCH CENTRE: June 2005

After the successes of previous months it would seem an improbable task to keep the momentum going but once again Taricaya and its volunteers have worked very hard to produce yet more wonderful breakthroughs ...

TARICAYA RESEARCH CENTRE: April/May 2005

It is with great satisfaction that I am able to report two fantastic breakthroughs at the Taricaya Research Centre over the last eight weeks. Both represent the culmination of long and hard work by both volunteers and staff alike ...

TARICAYA RESEARCH CENTRE: February/March 2005

I must apologise for the delay in producing this latest report, time seems to have escaped me these last few weeks and coupled with illness to staff members and a lot of work behind the scenes with the reserve and exciting new projects I can hardly believe we are already at the start of April ...

TARICAYA RESEARCH CENTRE: January 2005

It always seemed that each January was a bit slower to get going as I received our first volunteers of a new year but this year we have been incredibly busy and the momentum has not been lost. With the New Year I like to start some new initiatives as well as continue with the old ones and I feel it is time that Taricaya moves into a new type of investigation coupled with the older projects.
