Panthera’s Jaguar Photo Wins Runner-Up Prize in 2012 BBC Wildlife Camera Trap Photos of the Year Awards


We're excited to share that Panthera's camera trap photo of a jaguar mother and cubs in a Colombian oil palm plantation won the Runner-Up Prize in the New Discoveries category of the 2012 BBC Wildlife Camera Trap Photos of the Year Awards! Garnering substantial media coverage earlier this year, this photo was one of several images taken with Panthera’s camera traps that provided the first photographic evidence of wild jaguars with cubs in an oil palm plantation in Colombia.

Along with this award, a camera trap photo of a giant pangolin by Panthera Kaplan scholar, Laila Bahaa-el-din, and a camera trap image of a snow leopard taken by Panthera and our partners in Tajikistan’s Zorkul Nature Reserve were also commended in the Animal Portraits category. In addition, an image of a collared female cougar and her cubs monitored through the Teton Cougar Project, and a camera trap photo of mating raccoons in Honduras, were selected for the ‘Editor’s Choice’ list.
