Identidad Madidi

We are proud to share the 2015 Identidad Madidi Scientific Report, which synthesizes outstanding results from biodiversity surveys and scientific findings from six study sites in Madidi National Park.

We hope these contributions will strengthen the conservation efforts of Madidi National Park, the world's most biologically diverse protected area, as well as the country's scientific development on biodiversity issues.

Jaguar

The jaguar (Panthera onca) is the largest feline in America and the third largest in the world. Its preferred habitat are areas of forest and tropical savannas, below 2000 meters. Because the abundance of the jaguar is naturally low, knowledge of its biology and ecology is a priority action to ensure its long-term conservation. Since 2001 to date, WCS has carried out research about its distribution, density, eating habits and activity patterns in the Madidi National Park.
