The jaguar and the cougar Project
The jaguar and the cougar have both been classified as "Near Threatened" on the IUCN Red List 2017 (IUCN Red List), particularly due to the increasing conflicts generated by their attacks on domestic animals and their consequences. Although the territory of Guyana is still well preserved, the increasing urbanization and development of farms will certainly increase the risk of negative interactions between humans and big cats in the near future.
To remedy this situation, our team has set up a project whose objective is to support farmers in the protection of their livestock in a sustainable manner.
To achieve this objective, we focus our local actions on:
Establish an observatory of knowledge on feline attacks on domestic animals.
Improve our understanding of jaguars and pumas, with a focus on problematic individuals : study of their home ranges and movements, follow the capture of problematic individuals,
positionning GPS collars and camera traps.
Advise, support and accompany current farmers to prevent and limit feline attacks on their
livestock by strengthening certain measures or by setting up new practices.
Test new prevention and protection measures on volunteer farmers who are regularly
attacked by predators.
Inform and educate future farmers and professionals in agriculture and environment fields in
Guyana, Matiti Agricultural High School : interventions on the issue, practical workshops, and internships.
With the Dolphin project, we invite you to open your minds and help us create a new future for our beloved Dolphins.
Be united through a simple act and let’s buy a one way ticket for the Dolphins freedom.
Our message : educate on the conservation and protection of Dolphins by offering access to an exclusive, natural environment.

The project started in 2012 in Coroico and covers several Aymara and Afro-Bolivian communities in the region. It aims to combat deforestation by diversifying activities, in particular through the development of apiculture.
