Amazon Butterfly Species Guidebook
Gran Tierra partnered with CORPOAMAZONIA, the Corporation for the Sustainable Development of the Southern Amazon, to produce the first guidebook to the approximately 145 species of butterflies that exist in the Amazon piedmont. This study and cataloguing is a significant step in developing management and conservation practices for these species with high potential for scientific research and tourism.
