Adopta un Tayra

Adopt a Tayra

Regular price $50.000,00

If you symbolically adopt this species we will use the resources to:

  • Study the state of conservation of the Tayra populations that inhabit the reserve, what is the minimum area suitable for these and the effect of forest fragmentation on this species.
  • We will study how the populations of their prey are found in order to provide them with food resources through the planting of trees and shrubs of their favorite species.
  • We will connect isolated patches of forest through the creation of biological corridors through the planting of fast-growing trees.

The Tayra is found in most of the humid forests of our country. It is a relative of the otter or weasel. It is omnivorous, it eats rodents, iguanas, honey, eggs and fruits. In many cases it acts as a predator and controls the populations of the prey it consumes and in other cases it is an effective disperser, when it consumes fruits from the trees and transports them without damaging the seed.

The Tayra lives in burrows or holes in the trunks, it can have up to three cubs in a litter. She takes care of her young for 10 months, teaches them to hunt, gather fruits, camouflage themselves and flee from predators.

It has been estimated that the Tayra has a range of 500 hectares of forest cover, to guarantee that minimum range of forest in the reserve we must restore degraded areas and connect patches of forest that are isolated.
