Follow the Cock-of-the-rock!

To ensure the protection of the Guinean Cock-of-the-rock, a species emblematic of the Guianan plateau, teams from GEPOG continue to work to improve their knowledge of this bird.

As part of this programme, putting a transmitter on the birds is one technique used to understand better the birds’ movements and their choice of preferred habitat.

Thanks to the Life+ Cap DOM programme, teams have been able to organise sessions on the Montagne de Kaw, where birds have been captured and equipped with transmitters.

Here are some images about what is an ambitious adventure, both for the species and for the association, accompanied on this occasion by representatives from the CNRS.
