    TARICAYA RESEARCH CENTRE: MONTHLY UPDATE – JULY/AUGUST 2017

It is a great time of year to be in the jungle as the rivers drop and huge beaches appear welcoming annual migrant birds such as storks and skimmers.

The rainforest was suffering as a result of an abnormally dry end to last year and so plants and animals alike are rejuvenated as heavy rains fell. This is a vibrant time of year to walk through the jungle as many birds are nesting, animals come together for protection as food is now abundant and frogs chirp out mating and territory calls over freshly filled swamps.
