This meeting features a presentation by Abigail Martin on "Discover the Pantanal Jaguar"
     Abigail (Abbie) Martin is an American zoologist who founded the Jaguar Identification Project, a non-profit organization. The project uses citizen science and remote camera traps to study the ecology and behavior of a large population of jaguars found in the Porto Jofre region of the Brazilian Pantanal. Over the past 6 years she has documented 179 different jaguars and has over 2,500 hours of wild jaguar observations. Her project offers opportunities for young biologist and nature lovers to come volunteer and experience the beauty and wonder of the world’s largest and most wild wetland.
     Abbie will present her project along with a beautiful presentation on jaguar biology, ecology and conservation.
