Devra Kleiman - Brazil notebook, 1975-1982
About the Project
This notebook, from Smithsonian’s National Zoo conservation biologist Dr. Devra Kleiman's trips to Brazil from 1975 to 1982, digs a little deeper into all the people behind the successful golden lion tamarin conservation program. On these trips, Kleiman visited and met with representatives from the Instituto Butantan, Parque Zoológico de São Paulo, Poço das Antas Biological Reserve, and Tijuca National Park. Read about her observations in this journal-like notebook about her day to day interactions with staff, and often entertaining commentary. Help transcribe this notebook to get a fuller picture about how much coordinating and research happened to make the conservation program so successful.
