Laqui is in demand everywhere and with every project on the Northern Jaguar Reserve and surrounding Viviendo con Felinos ranches. He works as a jaguar guardian and field assistant, and we rely on his wide-ranging knowledge and abilities more and more each year. In any given month, Laqui will place and maintain motion-triggered cameras, assist visiting researchers, guide interns, accompany filmmakers, take the truck to the mechanic, help remove trespassing cows, and participate in gabion construction, road maintenance, fence repair, and invasive species removal. He has the skills required to share tasks with our biologists, combined with an innate knowledge of this area and a cool, confident dedication we find inspiring.
