Unusual Events at the TEAM Site: 

This year southern Amazonia is having continuous cold fronts (friajes), more than usual. We will confirm this using the weather data. 

Protocol Activities: 

On May 29th we enter to Manu National park to set up 60 camera traps inside Cocha Cashu Biological Station and Pakitza park ranger station. 

We also checked the weather station and check the materials for the vegetation census.

Protocol Problems: 

We did not changed the weather station equipment (for calibration). We only checked the facilities, instruments and downlodad data. 

Schedule Problems: 

We had to dealy the set up of the camera trap for one day due to an unsual cld front and storm combined.
