Wildlife biologist Rocky McBride explains “Project Jaguar,” an effort to study jaguars in Paraguay, to the International Wildlife Conservation Council Sept. 2018. He discusses how to identify “problem” jaguars and relocate them instead of having ranchers kill them, and how to put value on problem jaguars.
Could trophy jaguar hunting be coming to Paraguay? Big cat expert Rocky McBride takes his case to Washington D.C. in hopes of making that a reality. “Green Hunting” of jaguars is permitted in Paraguay, but science, conservation and predator control are factors that could open the doors to larger scale hunting of this spectacular cat. In his latest “Conservation Conservation” SCI’s Marc Watts and Rocky McBride discuss the current state of jaguar hunting.
