The Impact of the Pandemic on Conservation Projects in the Amazon



The impact of the pandemic also affects fauna and flora species conservation projects in Brazil.

Unable to be in the field to collect information, some researchers have lost precious data for their research, such as the breeding season or the intensified threat of illegal activities such as species trafficking or deforestation.

In this report, which will also be divided into three podcast episodes, journalist Paulina Chamorro and her team share the importance of three projects in the Amazon, their history and importance for biodiversity, and the challenges with the arrival of the pandemic.

The research material and interviews will be transformed into episodes, with sound effects and ambiance to tell about each of these projects, the research and the importance of species. All the material will be produced remotely, with interviews and research done remotely for health security reasons.
