  • Jaguars in Tortuguero National Park | GreenNoise – Spreading the Voice of Nature
    began the first efforts to study the jaguar population in Tortuguero National Park In 2012 biologist Stephanny Arroyo Arce in collaboration with Panthera joined efforts with GVI in the mission to discover the incredible mysteries surrounding the jaguars in Tortuguero National Park Jaguars are usually solitary and territorial species however we have discovered that the jaguars in Tortuguero display atypical social behavior which is strongly associated with the high availability of prey specifically the green turtles Chelonia mydas nesting in Tortuguero National Park The high availability of food has decreased competition among the jaguars which has facilitated the interaction between them It is important to highlight that this peculiar interaction between jaguars and marine turtles occurs in very few places in the country including Corcovado National Park and Playa Nancite in Santa Rosa National Park It has also been reported in three other countries in South America Suriname Guyana and French Guiana Furthermore our research shows that this interaction does not represent a threat to the marine turtle population nesting in Tortuguero National Park For more information about the project please contact Stephanny to sturnina gmail com Learn more about the work of Global Vision International in http www gvi

  • The San Juan-La Selva Biological Corridor | GreenNoise – Spreading the Voice of Nature
    Almendro tree Dipteryx panamensis The CBSS was consolidated in 2001 forming a partnership between non governmental organizations local associations municipalities and SINAC MINAE coordinated since then by the CCT In the Corridors Local Council there are about twenty local national and international organizations involved who bring their experiences and their views on the importance of this biological corridor The main lines of work of the Local Council are focused on restoring the ecological connectivity between the protected areas of southeastern Nicaragua and the lower basin of the Rio San Juan with the system of protected areas of the Arenal Huetar Norte and Cordillera Volcánica Central Conservation Areas in Costa Rica as well as the consolidation of the Maquenque National Wildlife Refuge core area of the Biological Corridor and the implementation of research conservation and education activities to contribute to socio economic development of the communities located within the corridor This area has been identified as important for its biodiversity the composition of its wildlife and to be essential for the connectivity of species at the local and regional level It also coincides geographically with the dispersal corridor least cost path for the jaguar identified by PANTHERA which is located between

  • Assessing genetic diversity of wild cats in Costa Rica | GreenNoise – Spreading the Voice of Nature
    Initiative in Costa Rica Google as the popular Internet search engine a German Shorthaired Pointer has been trained professionally in the country by the experienced trainer Carlos Orozco from Hablemos de Perros This method has been used successfully in other places to detect feces of several species of carnivores but this is the first time it s used in our country Google has also been certified as a detector dog on a canine academy in the United States putting him on par with the DEA and police K 9 dogs Wherever possible other types of biological samples for genetic analysis are also collected such as hair skin tissue bone teeth and blood Molecular analysis of the samples including identification of species individual identification gender identification gene flow genetic variation within populations and genetic differentiation between sub populations is being conducted by the Laboratory of Conservation Genetics in the School of Biology University of Costa Rica and the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics in the American Museum of Natural History in New York By having this large amount of information available researchers will be able to improve the knowledge of the wild cats coexisting in the region and apply it to

  • Coexistence between big cats and cattle | GreenNoise – Spreading the Voice of Nature
    injured or old and can not catch wild prey 2 because prey were hunted by humans with whom they share their territory and have nothing to eat or 3 because they see cattle going into the woods in their home This is one of the main conservation problems of these cats throughout their distribution A common scenario for there to be an attack on farms is where livestock are not given proper management with unfenced pastures where cattle occasionally enter the forest away from houses and surveillance near rivers or water bodies and where calves and pregnant cows are not well protected What can be done Farmers can protect their animals without having to remove the cats Some of the proven strategies to reduce the chances of predation by big cats include the use of night enclosures for animals especially for calves pregnant cows weak and sick animals setting up fences to restrict the passage of cattle to forest areas the location of the delivery areas close to houses keeping some old and experienced animals with horns who can defend the herd and the prohibition of hunting of wild animals on farms There is no perfect solution to this conflict
