Luiz Salvador Jr


Brazilian zoologist and doctoral student interested on the biology and conservation of neotropical birds of prey. In the last 18 years I've been working on raptor conservation in southeast Brazil, focusing on records of endangered species, habitat use, tolerance on human intervation and population status.
