Araguaia River – Jaguar Corridor Project

In central Brazil, the biggest threat to the jaguar is its isolation into small, fragmented populations. The Araguaia River – Jaguar Corridor project intends to create a dispersal corridor connecting jaguar populations residing along the Araguaia River.

Since this is a large scale project, the specific study areas and field activities vary throughout the year. If you want to learn more about the location and planned activities during the period of your internship, contact us via email at jaguar@jaguar.org.br.

The activities to be developed during the project vary according to the selected period. The interns will have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of data collection that take place during the period of the internships. The intern is expected to treat all data-collecting activities with responsibility and seriousness.

Activities you will participate in:

  • Monitoring through radio telemetry;
  • Setting and checking camera traps;
  • Collecting scats with scat detector dogs;
  • Interviewing local people in the study area;
  • Directly observing medium to large mammals .

Other activities:

  • Data input and processing – After each day’s field work, data is entered into the relevant JCF research database;
  • Daily activity report – A detailed report to be submitted within 2 weeks after the end of the internship.
