mountain marmosets conservation program

environmental education

The MMCP is fortunate to have a talented and passionate EE designer, Alessandro Antunes, who has received acclaim from prominent conservationists such as Russell Mittermeier. There are many forms of environmental education, in addition to networking with schools, local communities have shown to be very receptive to the crisis.

Alessandro started as a field research apprentice, but soon he developed a deep interest in expanding the limits of environmental education focusing on the different approaches to involve and engage with different public audiences. 

The importance of expanding our audience to highlight the issue of invasive marmosets is reiterated every time we go out on survey. Farmers are shocked to discover that the majority of marmosets are hybrids or released pets!
