Pantanal Jaguar Project
The Brazilian Pantanal is home to the highest density of jaguars in the world. In this region, Panthera’s Pantanal Jaguar Project is creating one of the world’s largest, intact, protected jaguar corridors – and partnering with local cattle ranchers to establish a model of ranching that is compatible with jaguar conservation.
Panthera’s Jaguar Corridor Initiative is the only conservation program to date which seeks to protect jaguars across their entire six million km2 range. In partnership with governments, corporations and local communities, Panthera’s Jaguar Corridor Initiative is working to preserve the genetic integrity of the jaguar by connecting and protecting core jaguar populations in human landscapes from northern Mexico to northern Argentina.
Journey of the Jaguar
The Journey of the Jaguar is the first-ever attempt by man to traverse the expansive Jaguar Corridor. Spanning four years, two continents and 10 countries, the Journey of the Jaguar is being led by Panthera’s scientists on foot and by horseback, boat, helicopter and car to assess the state of the jaguar, the integrity of its wild landscapes and the areas most in need of conservation attention along the Jaguar Corridor to ensure the future survival of this iconic species.
