CAMERA TRAP IMAGES FROM SAN CARLOS WILDLIFE RESERVE IN BENI BOLIVIA




San Carlos Wildlife Reserve is a remote conservation Reserve in Beni Bolivia where we take tourists to film wildlife such as Jaguars, Pink Dolphins, Macaws, Anacondas and much more, we also set up camera traps to record the movement of animals.
The aim of this project is to teach locals that wildlife is worth more alive than dead and that eco tourism is an excellent way to compensate Ranchers for lost cattle and in turn they can stop the killing of predators like Jaguars and Pumas.

See below some incredible images we have recorded on the Reserve including a recent image of a Jaguar and her nearly adult cub

AMAZING JAGUAR SIGHTING IN THE KAA IYA NATIONAL PARK



July 2018, we returned to Kaa iya National Park with a repeat client, the aim to observe the majestic Jaguar in its natural environment. 

The first few days proved challenging, we saw little tracks or wildlife in general, with the highlights being Crab eating foxes, Brocket Deer and an endless amount of birds. During a night drive we also came close to a pair of Tapirs however they didnt come into sight.

We continued to search for signs of Jaguars untill we stumbled upon some fresh tracks, just a few hours old they were in a clear direction and with this imformation we proceeded the next day with renewed confidence. 

We timed our safari drive to perfection and on the 3rd day in the afternoon we caught a speck of a large animal on the road. From experience we knew what to do in this situation and calmly turned off the car engine and waited for the Jaguar to come to us -  thankfully this Jaguar was a large male and it didnt even notice our presence so we were able to observe this Jaguar for over 45 minutes. 


SEE BELOW THE IMAGES OF OUR AMAZING SIGHTING





During the Kaa Iya National Park tour we also observed Grey Brocket Deer, Skunk, Agoutis, Crab Eating Foxes, 3 banded Armadillos and over 70 species of birds.
