Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
This accession consists of handwritten field data about groups of golden lion tamarins in the Poco das Antas Biological Reserve in Brazil. Each group was identified by a series of letters or letters and numbers. Most of the groups had been initially bred in zoos and released into the wild as part of a reintroduction effort led by the Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program (GLTCP). Locals familiar with the territory were taught to record observations of the reintroduced animals and their born-wild offspring. The data sheets were compiled and maintained by James M. Dietz, Research Associate, National Zoological Park, and Professor, University of Maryland. Some materials were created under the Department of Zoological Research.
