Panthera Field Scientist Daniel Corrales pours water over a plaster cast

Panther Field Scientist Daniel Corrales is shown making a plaster cast to be used to collect imprints of animal tracks left in the surrounding forests. In exchange for helping local farmer Rafael Monge build a new livestock enclosure to protect his cattle, Rafael will help Panthera collect these imprints to learn more about local jaguar and other wildlife populations.
