Join a life-altering Jaguar tracking expedition deep in the Darien Gap region of Panama. Led by naturalist Ricardo Moreno, the 10-day tracking adventure aims to trap a jaguar responsibly in order to attach an electronic collar. Through the tracking of jaguars, researchers learn about their behaviours, movements, and better understand the best ways of effective conservation of jaguar populations.
