Pedro is the founder of the Document Threatened Species Project (Projeto DoTS), a bold initiative to study, document and protect rare, poorly known and endangered species. 


DoTS was born from my interest in combining Conservation Photography and Research into a single initiative that is capable of achieving tangible results, focus on action-based conservation  initiatives, while still capable of generating awareness and impact beyond the walls of academic institutions.


The project focuses on little known and little appreciated creatures from Tropical rainforests and was established to help raise awareness about conservation.
