The Harpy is a scary beast.
First, congrats to the winner of the Harpy Chick Naming contest! I want to share the name of our beloved five-month-old harpy chick from Refugio Amazonas is Elpis, which means Hope in Greek.
Hello everybody one more time from the heart of the Peruvian Amazon!
Greetings from Refugio Amazonas – I have just returned to our research site in Tambopata after a break, and have recently gone through HarpyCam´s footage of the past two weeks.
Once you try the waters of Tambopata, you always come back!
Back in 2015, I had just wrapped up the project I was working on and I remember swimming in the Tambopata River. Gazing up at the canopy of dense trees, full of amazing animals species, and one of my friends told me: “Dani, keep in mind, once you try the waters of the Tambopata you will always come back!” At the time, I just laughed.
