It’s been 70 years since Jaguars were born in the waters of Argentina. Jaguars are now extinct in the area.
In northeastern Argentina lies the wet and lush Ibera Park. They worked on a plan to successfully return the Jaguars to the area.
Video footage of wild animals in action recorded by the camera. Conservationists gladly released the footage. The camera shows the parents walking across the street with one of the parents holding a cub in their mouth.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature classifies the endangered species. Some species became extinct seven decades ago.
Ibera Park is one of South America’s important wetlands. Recent jaguar births have marked the return of its top predator.
Tompkins Conservation and Fundación Rewilding Argentina released a joint statement to Zenger News on Thursday. “The first jaguars (Panthera onca) for Rewilding Argentina in the 1.8 million acre Ibera Park were caught on a stealth camera.
His parents are Jatobazinho and Arami, rehabilitated wild jaguars from Brazil. Jaguar’s parents released last year. In 2018, the first Jaguar cub was born at the Jaguar Reintroduction Center.”
Sebastian Di Martino, director of Rewilding Argentina, explains this. “The reintroduction program is about bringing back lost species. Restoring these species is an attempt to restore the ecosystem function of wetlands.
Jaguars, the top predator, plays a key role in the efforts.”
Jaguars in Argentina have lost more than 95 percent of their original range, the statement continued.
“The jaguar program began in 2012 and has successfully released eight jaguars into Ibera Park.”
The Ibera wetlands, one of South America’s largest and most important watersheds, opened in February. In 2022, it suffered massive damage.
Wildfires have burned 10 percent of Corrientes state, including 60 percent of Ibera National Park.
Rewilding can help restore natural processes. Rewilding is an essential tool in helping people become more resilient in the face of climate disasters.
