'The Rupununi Report’ Blog Series by Panthera Grantee Dr. Evi Paemelaere


We are excited to share that Panthera grantee and wildlife biologist, Dr. Evi Paemelaere, is now sharing stories about her research on jaguars in the Rupununi region of central Guyana through ‘The Rupununi Report’ blog series, hosted on the Adventures in Climate Change website. Learn about the incredible experiences Evi has had in the field and the wildlife she has encountered (pictures included!) while researching the presence and distribution of jaguars in this region, as part of Panthera’s Jaguar Corridor Initiative. It is our hope that Evi’s research will demonstrate the importance of the Rupununi region as a connecting block for the Jaguar Corridor, which extends between southern Venezuela, southern Guyana, and Suriname.
