Napo eyes up the photographer as he makes his public debut after arriving from France.

 

The two-year old will soon be turning his beady eyes to a new mate who will be arriving during half-term after the pair were matched-up as part of an international breeding programme aimed at saving the endangered species.

The zoo is currently developing a global survey designed to help reduce conflict between the species and humans across the jaguars’ range countries.

We also provide support to various jaguar projects in Belize and Guatemala, monitoring populations, examining human-jaguar conflict and developing tactics for dealing with this issue.
