Do you know about Kaw mountain in French Guiana?

An exceptional site for studying the Guianan Cock-of-the-rock

Bernard Perrin, a representative of the ONF (national forest office) particularly concerned with heritage issues, introduces us to the Kaw mountain area and the challenges it presents, whilst Marc Théry, a researcher with the CNRS (national research institute), outlines the telemetric studies being carried out there. Thanks to the new results collected, teams from GEPOG are better able to understand the behaviour of the Cock-of-the-rock and how it uses the areas where it lives, and thus put in place protection measures for the species which are compatible with the other, socio-economic, activities in the area.
