My name is Fernando Lima. I am a biologist and actually doing my Master graduate with my childhood dream: to work with wild cats. I am evaluating ocelot’s demography, home range and movement patterns through forest patches in the fragmented landscape of Pontal do Paranapanema region. I am working in the “Landscape Detectives” project since 2003 and I hope to increase the knowledge on this and other cats in Pontal and Upper Parana region to support Atlantic Forest conservation through corridor reforestation. I really like to read books written by naturalists that came to Brazil in the XIX century and their diaries. My hope here is that you enjoy this blog on our efforts to promote these fascinating animals conservation as I enjoy reading these earlier adventurers reports. Became part of our team! Welcome on board!
