Your Fieldwork

Track and observe wildlife

At EPI's Pacuare Reserve, primates swing through the trees and big cats cruise the trails. Collect observational data on primate behavior and family groups, and set camera traps to study the migratory behavior of Costa Rica's jaguars.

Partner Profile

Panthera is the world's only organization dedicated exclusively to the conservation of wild felines. Through biological studies and partnerships with other nonprofits like EPI, Panthera employs strategies to save imperiled cats. In Costa Rica, Panthera's efforts are directed toward jaguars through its Jaguar Corridor initiative, where scientists map the corridors that these cats use to live and move. EPI's Pacuare Reserve provides critical connective habitat and a density of jaguars more than ten times Costa Rica's national average.
