Returning Wildlife to their Natural Habitat With Freeland Brasil

Through her organization, Freeland Brasil, Dr. Juliana Machado Ferreira is helping the Center for Wildlife Management and Conservation

return wild animals to their natural habitats after they’ve been seized from poachers, traffickers or illegal pet holders.

Poachers and traffickers capture the animals because they are extremely valuable on the black market. The United States is one of the prime destinations for illegal South American wildlife, keeping the demand for this criminal and lucrative practice high.
