Tail, a male Tenori juvenile.

We collect behavioral data on one group of habituated capuchins, named Tenori group, and are in progress of habituating other groups (Palmas, Mesas, Sur, and Escameka). We collect data on the movement and alimentation of both groups.

Social group ranges as of Dec. 4, 2018.

In the field laboratory behind our house we extract hormones from capuchin feces, and will analyze the samples in the future.


To date we have marked 270 trees, which we monitor monthly for the presence of leaves, fruit, and flowers. We have created more than 15 km of trails to better access parts of the reserve, and are in the process of creating more.

Marked trees and trails.

In coordination with the Sistema Nacional de Áreas de Conservación we collect data on migratory birds and howler monkey groups found on the reserve, and collect trail camera footage of the diverse array of animal species present.
