We are very excited to be building a new partnership based in the Brazilian Pantanal, the worlds largest wetland and the best location in the world for wildlife tourist to come observe jaguars in their natural environment..
This year our partners are starting off a new project located at a cattle ranch that is also a ecolodge. Their ranch/lodge is located only 10km from a large city with 40k population. Since 2017 they have been occasionally setting camera traps there and since then have identified 12 individuals using this land. The thing about this lodge is they are surrounded by ranchers who aren't involved with eco tourism, not necessarily jaguar friendly and are annually losing their livestock to jaguar and or puma. Our goal here is to show our presence, give talks and workshops, and build a program where neighboring ranches pledge to be jaguar friendly and stop killing jaguars. In turn we will have a conservation tax that will be uses to help offset these losses for those who aren't working directly with ecotourism
