We use many Traps Cameras available to capture moments of unique Amazonian Wildlife, those moments are useful data to understand the forest dynamics, we using it use to create a baseline of pristine forest in the Yasuni Biosphere Reserve in Ecuador.

We set them in many locations in the forest, we chose randomly camera station like in remote Forest Clay Licks, close & far trails, Moriche swamps, forest swamps, oxbows, feeding trees, streams, most of the times these locations have a limited number of visitors.
