The project aims to monitor jaguars and collect science-based information to develop a Population and Habitat Viability Analysis (PHVA) in the Upper Parana Atlantic Forest (UPAF) of Argentina.
The work will lead to the development of a management plan to guide conservation of the jaguar. The management plan is an important step in coordinating the efforts of different institutions to develop a coherent conservation strategy. To minimize human jaguar conflicts, it is important to provide information and gather public support for the implementation of the management plan. The project also includes a communications campaign.
