Abstract


The Caiman Management Pilot Program in the Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve is coordinated by the government of the state of Amazonas. The initiative adheres to the legal framework for the use of natural resources in protected areas. Since 2004, three experimental culling events have taken place in the Jarauá sector of the Mamirauá Reserve. The latest event took place in December 2008, when 257 specimens were captured: 253 black caiman (Melanosuchus niger) and four spectacled caiman (Caiman crocodilus). Some data on surveys and specimen extraction in the latter experimental effort are hereby presented.
