Omar Figueroa, a Cayo boy, is Belize’s first jaguar man, or to put it more properly, first full-time jaguar researcher. He is literally re-mapping what is known about jaguars in Belize. The study area is concentrated in the contiguous Peccary Hills and Runaway Creek Reserves in central Belize. So far 3 pumas and 3 jaguars have been collared. Your jaguar tracking experience begins the evening before where you will meet with Omar in the Frieze Lounge for an orientation and the chance to see how the jaguars are tracked remotely. The following day, travel into the jungle to a designated location with Omar where you will start to look for signs of the jaguar and learn more about the conservation process.
