Collaborative Study at National Institute for Amazonian Research (INPA) and Participation to the International Workshop on Tropical Biodiversity Conservation

Report: TAWA Yuko

Date: 2012/10/21 - 2012/11/ 1

I attended the workshop, International Network for Tropical Biodiversity Conservation Focusing on the Studies on Large Animals, at National Institute for Amazonian Research (INPA) in Manaus. I got knowledge about researches on tropical rainforest and various wild animals. I gave a poster presentation on my research entitled "Observational studies on behaviors of captive lowland tapirs (Tapirus terrestris) -- preliminary reports of aggressiveness in male-male encounter and behavioral change during raining --". and I discussed my research during this workshop. I visited the Amazon River and observed wild animals such as boto (Amazon river dolphin) and tucuxi. At conserved forest of INPA (ZF2), I walked around the forests and saw canopies from a 45 meter high observation tower. Through this visit at INPA and fields of wildlife research, I learned about researches and conservation activities in Amazon. Amazonian rainforest is a habitat for Brazilian tapir, now I'm working on. I got information about characteristics of the Amazonian rainforests, and it will be useable to consider Brazilian tapirs' ecology and behavior in wild.
