José is an Anthropologist and Scientific Director fighting to save the jaguars, andean bears and harlequin frogs in the Amazon. By saving these species, he is saving entire ecosystems.
José will collect more data allowing him to streamline his projects to preserve jaguars, andean bears and ultimately the remarkable ecosystems of the Amazon.
The Amazon is at serious risk. Deforestation and commercial use of land are rapidly decreasing the habitats of the Amazon with jaguars losing as much as 50 % of their habitat in the last 50 years. In Uruguay and El Salvador, the jaguar is now considered extinct.
