Pousada Mirante da Colyna Spa started in 2012 Project structuring Trails Educational amidst the Atlantic Forest in order to improve understanding of regional environmental, ecological track of the inn and its inhabitants. We expect this project and the entire structure signaling the trails bring contributions to their knowledge and enrich your stay in Monte Verde!
The Atlantic Forest is a closed forest, which hinders the observation of its inhabitants. The double footprint is a scientific method that can detect animals not aggressively without capture, through its footprint. Therefore, to observe traces of these inhabitants prepared this bed footprint for you!
To observe animals on the trail revolve sand and let the smooth bed of footprints prepared without leaves or holes. It is important that it is smooth to mark the footprint of the animal to tread there. If it is too dry is necessary to moisten it. To attract these animals put a healthy bait (ham, sardines or banana, for example). The next day, in the morning, come check who appeared by surprise!
