Photo of the Day

Panthera

This image of a mother and cubs is one of the first photos of jaguars in a Colombian oil palm plantation taken by Panthera's camera traps. Placed in the Magdalena River valley, these camera traps were set to gather new data about the impact of Colombia’s ever-increasing oil palm plantations on jaguars. Panthera’s scientists are working to understand the implications of these habitat changes on jaguars and their ability to travel and reproduce, as well as the impacts palm plantations have on their prey species.

See more photos of these Jaguars in the Colombian oil palm plantaiton.
