Based on reports of sightings of big cat tracks and trails in the area, the Secretariat of Sustainable Development deployed 8 camera traps (Browning and Cuddeback brands) to verify the viability of the site and the presence of these species.

Enabling factors

The participation of local experts and the local community in the project design, as well as the knowledge and field experience of the Ministry of Sustainable Development.

Lessons learned

Field work and site characterization provided effective base-lines that allowed the team to assess the best sites for biodiversity monitoring. It was important to visit the sites where the local community had reported wildlife sightings, especially for jaguars and their prey. This allowed the team to allocate feline tracks and deploy the devices close to the tracks.
