Sketching Jaguars for Conservation
I sketch the prominent jaguars from the Jaguar Identification Project to help raise funds for the Jaguar ID project & Pantanal Relief Fund. The profits from these sketches will help the Jaguar ID project to build new volunteer dormitory.
About the Jaguar ID Project
The Jaguar Identification Project is a non-profit that uses citizen-science to build a cohesive database on individual jaguars in the northern Pantanal region.
The Pantanal is not only home to the highest density of jaguars in the world, but also the most habituated jaguars. Allowing it to be the best location to see wild jaguars in their natural habitat.
As a consequence of these jaguars becoming relaxed, the scientists have been able to follow various individuals and document their behaviors. Since the early 2000's jaguars have been cataloged in this area by using their spot pattern, which is comparable to a fingerprint.
Using facial, left and right photographs, mainly provide by tourist, the scientists are able to identify individual jaguars which has led us to build the Jaguar Guide. This guide has provided them with an amazing amount of information on individual behavior, lineages and relationships, and home ranges and movement. The observation technique is furthermore a unique and completely un-invasive to the cats.
