Jaguar Conservation in Costa Rica Reventazon Turrialba Barbilla Destierro Corridor Conservation Properties The Jaguar Project


“Buying land for conservation is the most direct and certain road to conservation, and in doing so ensures that at least some of our wilderness, and its biodiversity, survives.”
Sir David Attenborough


There are estimated to be less than 250 jaguars left in the wild in Costa Rica. In order to secure their future, preserving the continuity and biodiversity of their habitat is of paramount importance. Purchasing and protecting land within the Barbilla-Destierro Corridor is the most beneficial thing that you can do to help us to save the jaguar.

We match outstanding properties within the threatened corridor with appropriate conservation-focused buyers. Every one of our properties has been carefully selected for it's potential to strengthen the biological corridor through reforestation. See our conservation property listings here.


You can assist our ongoing field work by offering private donations to The Jaguar Project. We gratefully accept any contributions which will help to cover our accountable fixed expenses such as transportation and field equipment.


We appreciate volunteer help with website skills, translation, tree planting and camera-trapping. If you would like to volunteer to plant trees, or if you have any other skills to offer we would be happy to hear from you.
