Jaguar spotted in the Sierra Gorda

For this period we are proud to report sightings of wildlife coming back to the protected areas by our rangers. First, Leonel Espino founded tow active nest of red-crowned parrots that depend on the old-hollow trees to nest.

But the best just happened past July. Leonel came to office in in the first week of the month quite excited as he found several fresh tracks of a jaguar and even listened how the big cat disappeared in the bush. So he placed the camera traps in the forest and on the 26th of July, a big jaguar passed by, showing indeed the real value of providing, although a small plot in the territory a jaguar claims, safe heavens to wildlife. Jaguars of course are a forest health indicator and for us, they represent the real wilderness essence of these mountains.

In other protected areas, the only encounters of rangers were with wildlife and its signs, without illegal activities (logging, poaching, and forest fires), happening in any of them, totaling 20 surveillance trips.
