Summary

Since 2004, our project has focused on gathering information about local population status, protecting important areas of the Jaguar, and minimizing conflicts with ranchers. - For 19 years we've been studying the natural history of jaguars and their prey to ensure their protection and identify their priority areas. - Protecting Jaguars lets us save much more species in tropical forests and preserve the ecosystem services they provide directly and indirectly to humans and nature.

Challenge

In Mexico, 65% of the jaguar habitat has been reduced mainly by the increasing human need for food production spaces and urban construction. Human-jaguar interaction has been a constant conflict related to livestock predation that results in hunting as retaliation; and, very recently, the threat of poaching in the region. The Jaguar population faces a multi-scenario where the odds of natural survival are impossible without a human effort to protect this top predator.

Solution

The Felid Conservation Program of PPY focuses on protecting, restoring, strengthening, and saving jaguars and other felid inhabitants. The key to success is studying their population to evaluate their local status and working actively with the community to secure essential habitat spaces for jaguars and promote sustainable activities. We focus on combining different population surveys with community-based programs to ensure the effectiveness of conservation efforts and solve local problems.

Long-Term Impact

This project focuses on protecting an essential sanctuary region for the jaguar population where hunting does not exist and their reproduction is active. If we focus on regulating and reducing the number of livestock predation and the advance of the agricultural frontier, natural populations will persist in the region. Furthermore, ensuring the conservation of this species will echo in other wildlife populations, including other predators and their prey.
