Botánika’s Jaguar Protection Partnership

“We don’t own the planet Earth, we belong to it. And we must share it with our wildlife.”

At Botánika, we hold these words close to our hearts and are thrilled to introduce you to a project that deeply resonates with us: the Las Oncas Conservation Reserve & Ticos Wild Studio’s Jaguar Program. We're excited to have recently partnered with this dedicated team in their mission to protect jaguars in the Osa Peninsula. In the inaugural chapter of this initiative, we'll take you on a journey to the enigmatic Cordillera de Talamanca, where a significant milestone has been achieved. So, put on your adventure boots and let's embark on this journey.

Jaguar Alert: Celebrating Our 20th Detection
A few months ago, the Cordillera de Talamanca granted us a breathtaking sight: recordings of the jaguar named El Renco, also known as "Limpy" due to his distinctive limp. He has been under monitoring in Panama since 2018 and this was the first time he was spotted in Costa Rica. His distinctive limp makes him easily identifiable.

The Sponsor Program: Camera Monitoring Fleet
The Jaguar Program provides an impactful way for businesses like Botánika to contribute to the study and conservation of Costa Rica's jaguars. Through an annual subscription, corporations can sponsor a strategically placed camera fleet in the jungle. These cameras capture jaguars and other remarkable wildlife, enabling the team to study them over time and their geographic travel patterns. This not only raises awareness for the cause but also helps identify critical areas in the jungle that require protection.

The experience of checking the cameras in the heart of the Costa Rican jungle is always special, and we can't wait to share the new documented jaguar encounters with our Botánika family. Together, we can make a meaningful difference for both the jaguars and the pristine landscapes of Costa Rica.
