Dr. Rodrigo Salles de Carvalho    

MMCP species coordinator  |  Researcher/Primatologist PREA

 

During his Phd studies (2011 - 2015) with C. aurita  Rodrigo realized that this species was under a bigger risk than was being credited to it. In 2014 he promoted a meeting with national and international primatologists which became the start of a path that lead to the current Mountain Marmoset Conservation Program (MMCP).  Since then Rodrigo has worked to compose a network of stakeholders necessary to move forward an effective conservation plan for the C. aurita species.
