Míriam Perilli

Brazil Coordinator, Neotropics Program

Based at Instituto de Pesquisas Ecológicas - IPÊ, Míriam is a field ecologist who has been with ELTI since May 2018.

As a field ecologist by training, Míriam has been enrolled in several research projects in the Brazilian Pantanal and Atlantic Forest. During both her M.Sc. and D.Sc. she worked with large mammals, community and trophic ecology. In addition to her scientific background, Míriam worked directly with local communities’ perceptions of jaguars and with cattle ranchers to access and help mitigate the damage caused by large cat cattle depredation.

I am thrilled to be part of a team that works on ways to restore tropical forests while supporting and improving people's lives. This is a win-win scenario!
