Track Jaguars at Pacuare Reserve
Pacuare Reserve, the primary field site for EPI's Felines & Primates Program has a remarkable abundance of jaguars and other felines. A recent study showed that the Reserve has a population ten times the national average. It's hypothesized that the Reserve is a key piece of a migratory corridor along the Caribbean coast. You'll monitor existing camera traps, set some of your own, and track felines using traditional methods in order to support the Reserve's management and understanding of these incredible species.
