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.
Thanks to the efforts of SCI Central Paraguay Chapter, lead by Pedro Zuccolillo, the Secretary of Environment of Paraguay issued the Resolution N. 799-2014 opening the dove season for the next five years.
The season will be open from April 1st to July 31st setting the rules and procedures for national and international hunters to enjoy dove hunting in the country.
This will also allow to outfitters to offer packages ahead of time; something it was very difficult in the past due some years the agency didn’t open the season until very late in the year or did not issue the resolution at all.
Congratulations to Pedro Zuccolillo and his team for this accomplishment!—J.Thomas Saldias, MSc.
