New and Live: WLT's wildlife webcam in Brazil

The REGUA webcam attracts a wide variety of Atlantic Rainforest species and we are hoping that in coming months more bird species will be seen, including this male Violet-capped Woodnymph © Luciano Breves.

A fascinating glimpse into life in the rainforest, World Land Trust's (WLT) new wildlife webcam streams live footage from REGUA's Guapi Assu reserve. Transporting you to the heart of the habitat WLT helps to protect.

WLT Multimedia Officer Luciano Breves and WLT project partner REGUA set up the new webcam to capture the variety of Atlantic Rainforest wildlife at this reserve. Along with an amazing array of bird species, the webcam is often visited by the Common or White Tufted-ear Marmosets (Callithrix jacchus), so look out for this entertaining species. Luciano also has future plans to develop this webcam and increase the species number by adding a hummingbird feeder.

Luciano is online every Tuesday for a live webchat, so don’t miss the chance to have your questions answered by our webcam expert.
