If you symbolically adopt this species we will use the resources to:
Investigate the conservation status of the ocelot population that inhabits the reserve.
We will study how the populations of their prey are found in order to provide them with food resources through the planting of trees and shrubs of their favorite species.
We will connect isolated patches of forest through the creation of biological corridors through the planting of fast-growing trees.
We will study the crossing patterns of the jaguar on the roads to facilitate the passage through the construction of tunnels in sections with forest cover.
IMPORTANCE OF THE OCELOT
It is a medium-sized feline with a wide distribution, inhabits from beaches to mangroves and even moors. Although its conservation status is of least concern according to the IUCN, the destruction of its habitat and hunting have affected the natural distribution of populations, restricting it to isolated patches of forest. ANDIt is evident that the fragmented landscape of Magdalena Medio prevents the natural mobility of this feline and can affect the genetic flow of populations.
The ocelot feeds on any animal that it can stalk and catch. They are solitary cats, mainly nocturnal and extremely territorial, in addition, they are excellent climbers which helps it find prey in trees.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
You will receive your adoption certificate by email.
If your species comes out in the collection of camera traps, select, we will send you photos or videos so that you can know the beings that you help protect.
Once the investigation of your species begins, we will send you newsletters with relevant information.
You can enter one of our masterclasses focused on environmental and conservation issues.
