Araucaria Biospere Reserve of Southern Chile Wildlife Monitoring

We aim to establish a long-term monitoring of wildlife in the Araucarias Biosphere Reserve (UNESCO). The Biosphere reserve contains several National Parks and associated buffer areas. A total of three schools will monitor wildlife with an estimated total of 120 camera trap sites, both outside and inside protected areas. Project-based learning will enable teachers from different subjects, such as Math, Language, Science, Arts and Foreign language (English) to apply the national curriculum and lesson plans with the camera trap project at center stage. This is a project funded by the National Commission of Science and Technology of Chile (CONICYT-Ministry of Education) and their EXPLORA programme that focuses on bringing science to the classroom. We also aim that children have the experience of contributing to global science information through eMammal.
