Ecological relationships of jaguars and pumas and their impacts on major prey species in northern Mexico.
Jaguar projects are prevalent in North America on both sides of the international border. Jaguar (Panthera onca) hold historic significance and charismatic charm used by governments and NGOs involved in jaguar detection, protection, de-fragmentation, and conservancy. Our professionals are committed to biodiversity: A jaguar as the “spearhead” promotes environmental interest. Puma (Puma concolor), collared peccary (Pecari tajacu), and white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) are supported by connection, albeit in the presence of domestic cattle (Bos taurus/indicus). The Team Sonora Jaguar Project is a 5 - 6 year management oriented study. It intends to quantify habitat use of jaguars and to study densities of major prey species while empowering human inhabitants with access to the resources contained in their land and options for eco-tourism and higher education: success is qualified within the social framework of the region.
