1. JCR welcomes visiting primatologist: The Reserve recently hosted Laura Cervera, a primatologist visited from Eloy Alfaro University in Manta, Ecuador. Laura shared some useful methodology tips and several local and international connections that we look forward to developing, including joining a regional network of researchers monitoring Mantled howler monkeys and Ecuadorian white­-fronted capuchins.

2. Pineapple and papayas are growing strong! The papaya trees in the production zone are currently producing hearty crops of papayas, which JCR field staff and interns are looking forward to eating fresh off the trees and celebrating the production zone’s capacity to produce more of our food on­-site, and a baby pineapple has been spotted in the garden! As a pink and purple plant, it’s an unusual ­looking gem!
