Our Projects in Latin America
Our conservation work in Latin America is based on our active scientific research into threatened species like jaguars and the Ecuador Amazon parrot.
Latin America is home to the greatest biological diversity on the planet with habitats ranging from mountains to rainforests. And although a fifth of its landmass is set aside for conservation, major threats continue to affect the diverse ecosystems of the region, including land degradation, deforestation, human-wildlife conflict and over-exploitation.
We're leading the fight to save the Ecuador Amazon parrot and working to alleviate human-jaguar conflict in Brazil, alongside the creation of successful partnerships to conserve the threatened and iconic species found in these important ecosystems of Latin America.
