Titre : Expanding the Assessment of Threatened Dragonflies in a High Biodiversity Area of Cerrado : Conservation Subsidies

Pays : Brazil

Zone d’intervention : Serra da Canastra National Park

Date : 24 Aug 2018

Bénéficiaire : Ricardo Koroiva

Contexte
Land use conversions and the lack of information about the species found in Brazilian savanna (“Cerrado”) are considered the biggest challenge for any conservation plan in this biodiversity hotspot region. Expanding the studies developed in previous project, here, we will improve the knowledge of dragonflies in another high diversity area of Cerrado : Serra da Canastra.

Description
Keeping concerns about endangered species, we will evaluate the distribution of populations and improve the descriptive taxonomy of eight threatened species. We will also publish a field guide of the endangered and threatened dragonfly species found in the Serra da Canastra National Park, aiming to sensitize tourists and the local community to the importance of preserving in this nature reserve. The information generated in this new study will also be incorporated into the website developed in the previous project (www.environmentalsentinels.net). Finally, we intend through partnership with Serra da Canastra National Park´s manager disclose the importance of environment preservation for local community and tourists.
