Araripe manakin conservation center
Alberto Alves Campos
The Araripe Manakin is the most endangered manakin in the world with less than 800 individuals and 28km2 of remaining habitat. The overall goal of this proposal is to consolidate previous actions related to the awareness campaign, habitat recovery techniques, and creation of a fully protected area in the Araripe region. The main objectives are: (1) Involve the local society in the conservation of the Araripe Manakin through the development of birdwatching activities; (2) conduct botanic research and outreach activities to promote habitat recovery; and (3) continue to follow up closely the creation process of the fully protected area.
