The Ecology and Conservation of the Jaguar project in the Serra da Capivara and Serra das Confusões National Parks has been developed since 2006 by the Jaguar Conservation Fund / Instituto Onça-Pintada. The main goal of the project is to investigate and monitor aspects of jaguar ecology, epidemiology and genetics, and develop strategies for jaguar management and conservation in the area.
