The Animalis project is probably the most visible part of the overall programme. This project was established in 1992 and now extends to seven Faber-Castell managed forests. A total of 19 different mammals and 148 species of bird have been observed, twelve of which count as endangered species. That is sensational news, which puts the project on a significant national footing. After ten years we can draw the following conclusions:
(a) The Faber-Castell forests have attracted important species that were previously not present, such as Pseudalopex vetulus (hoary zorro ) and Casmerodius albus (great egret).
(b) The populations of several endangered species have increased, e.g. Leopardus pardalis (ocelot) and Puma concolor (puma).
(c) Certain species seem to feel particularly at home in our pine forests, for example Rhea americana (rhea) and Cerdocyon thous (common zorro).
