I am a conservation biologist with strong interests in animal behaviour, project planning, and mainstreaming locally the conservation agenda. I have been with the CTSG for over decade and have worked on several reintroduction policy and initiatives in Brazil. Recently I have become interested in the issue of Exit Strategies for conservation projects, as an extension of adaptive management and our responsibilities toward project stakeholders. My main work is with golden lion tamarins, of which about 70% live in privately-owned forests. I also with the reintroduction of the piping guan (Aburria jacutinga), a project that also includes releasing animals into both public protected areas and privately owned forest.
