Guiña awareness workshops

Workshops were held with groups of campesinos in five parishes in our study area: Pichares, Coilaco, Carileufu, Palguin bajo and Relicura. Approximately 30 people attended each one. The purpose of the workshops was to evaluate the level of knowledge in the communities about carnivores and carnivore ecology, in particular the kod kod cat. Knowledge and images gained through our camera trapping work were presented to highlight the positive benefits of carnivores, in particular their role in the control of Hanta virus, which is vectored by rodents, and prevalent in the area.
