November is jaguar month. Let’s start expanding and improving this database! We invite researchers and managers from protected and private areas as well as specialists that can help maintain the quality of the information, to participate in this challenge with us. Put it on your calendar: November 24-26!
The challenge consists of posting photos of live jaguars and their footprints, as well as jaguar parts such as skin and bones, as long as the origin is known. For pictures of animal parts trafficked illegally, please inform where the photo was taken.
Pictures of any date are valid. While it is necessary to include a location, it is possible to opt to not publicly reveal the precise location.
