The Jaguar Project seeks, through research and concrete actions, to ensure long-term conservation of a viable population of jaguar and the species with which it coexists in the Atlantic Forest and the Argentine Chaco.
The jaguar, or American tiger, is the largest cat of the continent. Jaguars still surviving in Argentina are the southernmost populations of this species that historically lived up to many kilometers further South, including part of Patagonia – Argentina.
Today, most of jaguar populations are seriously threatened and the few ones still surviving in southern South America are in need of urgent conservation measures.
Our efforts are focused on generating information on the state of the jaguar and its habitat as well as understanding the threats to which it is exposed so as to implement effective conservation measures leading to its preservation.
