Pico Bonito is a crucial core area in Honduras for jaguars. Here, they can live in their natural environment and breed in relative safety. “Without core areas, there will not be any more jaguars,” Chief Scientist Dr. Alan Rabinowitz said.
Jaguars in Honduras move through a lot of human-dominated landscapes, like pineapple plantations, cacao plantations, and people’s backyards. Our scientists talked to cacao farmers proud to have jaguars on their farms and discussed future incentives for farmers who protect jaguars on their lands.
