Brazilian farmers explore multiple ways to protect jaguars while raising farm animals

Farmers in Brazil’s Pantanal Wetland are adopting various methods to mitigate conflicts with jaguars, aiming to coexist harmoniously with these wild cats. With less than 10 percent of the Pantanal designated as an ecological conservation zone and the majority used for agriculture, conflicts arise due to a decline in wild prey and increased livestock raising. In Porto Jofre, farmers have relocated cattle and sheep to reduce conflicts, while some have installed electric fences around cattle pens to protect livestock without harming jaguars. The local community aims to protect the big cats, seeking help from authorities or animal protection organizations when conflicts arise. Efforts to address jaguar-farmer conflicts are considered crucial for species conservation in the region.
