Biologist from the National University of San Marcos, MSc. in Biology at Towson University – USA, and a PhD candidate from the University of British Columbia, Canada. She collaborated at the Museum of Natural History of San Marcos for six years. Her research interests include the ecology and conservation of medium to large mammals. Her master’s thesis research was focused on the reintroduction of collared peccaries in the Ibera Natural Reserve in Argentina, which is part of a rewilding project in the same area. In addition, she collaborates in projects related to the distribution and conservation of carnivores in Peru. Fo her PhD thesis she is studying the connectivity of the dry forest of nothern Peru and southern Ecuador, with a main focus on carnivores species.
Biologist from the National University of Piura, and Master in Ecology and Conservation at the State University of Santa Cruz, Brazil. He collaborates with the Department of Mastozoology at CORBIDI and is the Peruvian Representative of the Wild Felid Research & Management Association. Alvaro is focused on the ecology and conservation of medium to large mammals. For his master thesis he evaluated the influence of free-ranging dogs on the spatio-temporal patterns of mesocarnivores in agroforestry landscapes of the Atlantic Forest. Currently he is co-leading the Peruvian Desert Cat Project and previously, he has worked with shorebirds, and birds from the dry forest.
Biologist from the National University of Piura, with experience in the establishment of conservation areas and the empowerment of communities in the most fragile ecosystems of Northwest Peru (e.g. dry forests, montane and páramos). Her line of research is focused on the ecology and conservation of medium and large mammals, with emphasis on primates.

Doctora en Ciencias con mención en Ecología y Evolución de la Universidad Austral de Chile. Ha sido colaboradora del Museo de Historia Natural de San Marcos y su línea principal de investigación es la taxonomía y evolución de mamíferos sudamericanos. Actualmente esta investigando el rol de lo Andes en la diversificación de roedores sigmodontinos.
Biologist from the National University of Piura, focused on the ecology and conservation of mammals, with an emphasis on felines. He is experienced in using camera traps, Sherman traps, telemetry, and survey development to monitor carnivores, primates, and rodents in the Sechura desert, dry forest, and high jungle. For his degree thesis, he developed the project “Area of action of Leopardus colocola (Molina, 1782) gato del pajonal, Manglares de San Pedro de Vice, Piura-Peru.” Currently, he participates in the Gato del Desierto and Persistence of Carnivores with BioS.
Biologist from the National University of San Marcos. It is focused on the ecology and conservation of mammals, with a main interest in bats through acoustic detection and traditional capture methods, either in urban areas and native environments. The results of his undergraduate thesis will reveal 20 species of bats in the department of Lima, many of them not reported since the mid-twentieth century. We consider that his experience in obtaining and analyzing acoustic records of bats in almost all regions of Peru is crucial for the development of databases for the identification of records obtained in the EcoBat project.
