I head a non-profit called Projeto Dacnis, which focuses on Atlantic forest conservation and research (mostly natural history). We have two private reserves: one in Ubatuba (coastal Atlantic forest in the north of the state of São Paulo, Serra do Mar complex), and one in São Francisco Xavier (montane Atlantic forest in the state of São Paulo, Mantiqueira mountains complex), where I live, and where I am recording birds, Lepidoptera, insects, and whatever else crosses my path. Isolation during the pandemic and a fantastic backyard have led me to develop something of an obsession with my local butterflies and moths, although I began recording them in April 2019 as part of the Projeto Dacnis wildlife monitoring.
