Endangered Species

Sadly, on our last trip, our founder was offered the pelt of a female jaguar and her live cub for $2500 US dollars. What compounds this tragedy is that the low estimate that there may only be 200 of these big cats left in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve. While the Harpy Eagle is beginning to make a comeback of sorts, many of these other animals are being pushed out by development, or decimated by hunting, like the Gibnut (Queen’s Rat). With little education and little representation in government, sadly these people do what they feel they must do in order to survive, the results of which can have terrible ecological consequences.
