into the pre-dawn jungle with our One World Journeys team including photographer
and author, Patricio Robles Gil -- as we attempt to find, tree, and collar a jaguar,
the world's third-largest and least-known cat. Be a part of this effort to study
and preserve the endangered jaguar and the dwindling tropical forest it prowls.
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.
Who are these brave souls, both in the field and at home, who are taking on such a project? Come find out.
And if you have a question, you can contact our team in the field through our message boards.
Today's Bulletin: Follow the Expedition: Journey into the jungle with our team on a 10-day expedition in search of the jaguar. Through Special Reports and Live Expedition Journals, you will experience the thrill of the search and the secrets behind the land that is home to the jaguar.
