The Projects

Jaguar Box

Panthera Jaguar Corridor

The Jaguar Corridor Initiative is working to preserve the genetic integrity and future of the jaguar by connecting and protecting core jaguar populations from Mexico to Argentina.

Scientists from the Initiative are working to mitigate human-jaguar conflict surrounding livestock predation by training ranchers in anti-predator husbandry techniques, including building predator-proof enclosures. Field teams also educate local communities about overhunting of jaguar prey species, which encourages livestock predation.

Hyena Box

Botswana Predator Conservation Trust

The goal of the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust (BPCT) is to preserve Africa's large predators - African wild dog, cheetah, leopard, lion and spotted hyena - and their habitats, using scientific inquiry to better understand their behaviors and communication systems.

Research projects vary from population monitoring to livestock husbandry and sustainable agriculture. Through “Coaching for Conservation” programs, BPCT educates primary school children about the importance of conservation and healthy lifestyles.
