Join our annual capture-release program that began in 2009. Collect data on body condition, disease, and growth, as well as population level data on births, disappearances, and dispersals for 14 groups of tamarins. 

Help conduct large-scale biodiversity screening of mammals in SE Peru using applied genomics and other tools. Implement eDNA monitoring protocols and identify species through morphology and DNA barcoding.

Deploy species-specific GPS trackers, remote-sensing dataloggers, smart traps and hair snares. Extend the range of communication back to the field station and beyond using a LoRa network.

Collect samples from a variety of wildlife species to screen for parasites, pathogens, and contaminants. Participants will use microscopy, genetic tools (from PCR to nanopore sequencing), and other methodologies.
