At the moment we are working at two research sites:
The Rio do Brasil site is at the beginning of the implementation of a research base, we are registering the capuchin monkey (Sapajus robustus) groups and assessing the other primates that lives in the area (like Calicebus monkeys).
The Serra da Capivara site has an ongoing long term research of several bearded capuchin groups (S. libidinosus), mostly regarding tool use and social learning. The main primatologist working in that area , Dr. Tiago Falótico, is also one of the founder of NeoPReGo. Our primary goal for this site is to expand the research to other areas, like biomechanic and morphology, and begin an education outreach for the local communities.
