The Jaguar Conservation Fund uses camera trapping and radio transmitters to count individuals and study animal movements, home range and activity patterns.
They have trained dogs to track Jaguars and sometimes set up live-cage traps to capture them for collaring. Other dogs can also sniff out scat which is used for DNA identification and to learn more about their diet, genetics, health, stress hormones and reproductive status.
