A moment of magic with the strongest pound for pound big cat on the planet. Although the Pantanal is a safe place for jaguars, they face like other big cats serious issues. Habitat fragmentation caused by human presence and intensification of land use is a threat to jaguars in the Pantanal. Other threats include high levels of retaliation from ranchers due to livestock depredation and the lack of enforcement by wildlife authorities, illegal hunting tourism activity, pasture management through the use of annual fires, and the mining industry. By sharing their story I hope to play my part in bringing awareness to them and I hope to show you a side to this magnificent cat you’ve not see before.
