Colombian Great Anteater Conservation Project

Anteaters, tamandúas and seraphim are little known species in Colombia. The Cunaguaro Foundation's anteater conservation project seeks to contribute to the knowledge of the populations of these species in the country, in order to generate basic scientific information that will allow us to make concrete decisions which will have an impact on their conservation. This initiative has been carried out since 2012 and is a pioneer in the conservation of these mammals in the country.

In the last five years, at least 220 specimen have been run over on the roads of the Orinoco and the Caribbean. If no concrete action is taken in the next few years, anteaters will become irretrievably extinct.
