My objective is to see if there are bush dogs in Manaus and to find out what is suitable as the study site for the research on bush dogs. In addition, I investigate the filtering system of manatee pool.

For the survey of bush dogs, I went to Manaus, Brazil, to collect information of bush dogs from people who are studying experimental forest of National Institute of Amazonian Research, called ZF-2.
As a result, I heard that a pack of bush dogs is living in the jungle of the ZF-2.
Based on that information, I made a search for the bush dogs.
I directly walked transect of ZF-2 and went up the Amazon river by boat.
However, because I could go there for only a few days, I could not see the bush dog.
I need more research to judge whether or not I can study bush dogs in the jungle of the ZF-2.
