The production of images captured and organized since 2006, used to support research, allows for the unfolding of different potentialities for the multiplication of knowledge, through the internet and social networks. OBBIO – Biodiversity Observatory is an IPBio project to disseminate records obtained by a network of video cameras that monitor fauna and flora 24 hours a day, generating films and content for use in research and teaching. See now some unprecedented images of the behavior of wild animals.
