About This Project

The goal of our project is to improve connectivity of jaguar habitat in southern Mexico, an area of highly threatened rainforest and a critical wildlife movement corridor. Our methods are completely noninvasive. Conservation Canines detection dogs locate scat samples for DNA/hormone analyses. Our goal will improve jaguar welfare and the ecosystem beneath this top predator, as well as the human societies that live alongside them.
