This action aims to raise funds to replace the lost camera traps so that we can continue the 2022 census of jaguars and the monitoring of their prey.
The mission of the Onças do Iguaçu Project is to conserve the jaguar as a key species for maintaining the biodiversity of the Iguaçu National Park.
It works along three main lines: research, engagement and coexistence between people and big cats.
One of the research actions is to install camera traps in the Iguaçu National Park, which allows the project to carry out biannual censuses of the jaguar population in the park and also monitor the populations of their prey.
Due to a recent flood of the Iguaçu River, we lost 30 camera traps that were submerged. As this is a jaguar census year, this loss has a negative impact on our work.
The funds will be used to purchase 20 Bushnell camera traps. The traps will be installed in the Iguaçu National Park to monitor the population of jaguars and their prey.
