Jaguar Population Monitoring Program

Knowing how many jaguars are living in different regions and how these populations behave over the time, gives us information about its health, threats and intervention needs that they require to ensure their survival, as well as information for decision-making.

All this information is kept in dynamic databases and is pooled with that generated by other groups of researchers of our country. One of the goals that are being pursued is to form a single database that provides all NGOs and diferent governments, both national and provincial, a complete and constantly updated knowledge about the state of health of the jaguar in Argentina.

For that we carry our Yaguaretés Population Monitoring Program in Argentina, to know as accurately as possible where Jaguars still move.

These are some of the individuals we are following by using camera traps, which capture their passage in the forests of northern Argentina:

Mombyry

It is one of the last Jaguars of southern Misiones Green Corridor. He was detected by our camera traps for the first time in December 2013.

Temiandu

Temiandú

“The Visitor”, as his nickname in Guarani means. He was the first Jaguar recorded arround our electrified fences (although not attacked calves) in mid 2014. Then we never meet him again. Will he been displaced by Mombyry? Will he been hunted by farmers? Will he be sought territory in another area?

Region: Selva Misionera (Upper Paraná Atlantic Forest).

Fantasma

Fantasma

“Ghost”. She appeared one night in one of our most remote stations and we only got blurred images. We assume that is a female, but since that meeting in 2011 we didn’t see her again. We hope repeat soon studies in the area and see her again.

Region: Yungas.
