Welcome to the Jaguar ID Project, where we invite you to take a journey inside the life of a Pantanal jaguar. Get up close and personal with some of South America's largest wild cats and discover the work we undertake every day to observe, identify, and conserve these majestic animals in the Northern Pantanal.


Dear Jaguar ID Enthusiasts,

I am writing to you with immense pride and excitement as the founder of the Jaguar ID project. It has been an incredible journey, and I am thrilled to share our mission and story with you.

My fascination with jaguars goes beyond their majestic appearance and elusive nature. It stems from a deep-rooted commitment to understanding and conserving these extraordinary creatures and the ecosystem they live in. The Jaguar ID Project was born out of a desire to bridge the gap between scientific research, real-world conservation efforts, and the invaluable involvement of citizen science.

As a team of passionate individuals, we embarked on this journey to create a comprehensive and innovative approach to studying jaguars in the world's most famous jaguar reserve, the Pantanal. Our mission is not just about identifying and monitoring these magnificent animals but also about fostering a profound connection between humans and jaguars. We believe that by unraveling the mysteries of their behavior, ecology, and movements, we can contribute significantly to their conservation.

The Jaguar ID Project is not just about data collection; it's about building a community dedicated to the well-being of jaguars and the Pantanal. We have collaborated with leading experts and developed a platform that not only allows us to gather valuable insights but also encourages enthusiasts like you to actively participate in our mission through citizen science.

Our journey has been filled with challenges, triumphs, and, most importantly, a shared passion for preserving the beauty of the jaguar species in the Pantanal. We've seen the impact of our work in the field, from refining conservation strategies to raising awareness globally. But our story is far from over, and we invite you to join us on this exciting adventure.

At the heart of the Jaguar ID Project is a commitment to making a meaningful difference. We believe that by fostering collaboration and connecting with individuals who share our love for jaguars and the Pantanal, we can pave the way for a brighter future for these incredible creatures and their critically important habitat.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. Together, we can make a lasting impact on jaguar conservation.
