Counting Jaguars in the Amazon

For three months, 180 camera traps, set out in a large grid covering two Forest Stewardship Council-certified logging concessions, will be taking thousands of pictures of a wide variety of mammals and terrestrial birds, but we are particularly interested in the jaguar. Previous research showed that our study site had a high density of this top predator, so this time we set out one of the largest camera-trap grids ever used in the Amazon.
