NAPO-PUTUMAYO CORRIDOR :: COLOMBIA, ECUADOR, PERU
Jaguars often move between forest habitats to hunt and breed. Over a century ago, these large cats roamed as far north as New Mexico and Arizona and as far south as Argentina. But today, they’ve lost almost 50% of their original range due to threats like deforestation and habitat destruction, and the vast majority of their population is restricted to the Amazon basin. In 2017, WWF-Peru began monitoring jaguars in the Napo-Putumayo Corridor to gain crucial insights that could help ensure the species’ long-term survival.
