We’ve been working with the project since it first began in 2011; but prior to the project, little was known about the species due to their low population numbers and elusive behaviour. This long-term ecological study has documented the important role the armadillo plays in the ecosystem.
We’re really proud to be working with partners like the Giant Armadillo Conservation Project, to help conserve precious species and their habitats. Ecological research is a really important part of conservation. It helps conservationists to keep a close eye on any changes and define the areas and species that in most need of help. Scientific research can help us learn more and help make a big difference in saving wildlife.
