Where are the animals of the Cerrado?

Research conducted recently by the Biotropic Institute shows that endangered species may also be in regenerating areas of the Cerrado, demonstrating the importance of preserving and restoring degraded areas. Using automatic cameras, the institute captured images of mammals transiting the two distinct environments & #8211; Cerrado vegetation regenerated after deforestation and Cerrado vegetation that has not suffered significant impacts in the last four decades.

Although it is well established that regenerated savanna areas play an important role in conserving biodiversity, until then there have been no studies conferring their importance on Cerrado fauna.

Kolbe Soares, conservation analyst of the WWF-Brazil Cerrado Pantanal Program, believes that this finding is very important, since the work on the recovery of Cerrado areas tends to intensify with the implementation of the National Native Vegetation Recovery Plan - PLANAVEG (Decree 8972/17).
