Our expedition team will explore in and around the Calakmul Biosphere Reserve, 1.8 million arces comprised of a patchwork of mature disturbed forest, secondary growth, and savanna-type flood plains on the Yucatán Peninsula. As we track the cat, we'll also visit ancient Maya ruins, meet rare rainforest animals, and discover why this environment is threatened. What we discover could well predict our own future.
