What is in the park at Saladero?

On our 3 trails we have strategically placed camera traps to learn more about the animals that inhabit Piedras Blancas National Park. We are collecting data to be used in the "Cat Program" to determine the abundance of all the animals in the primary rainforests of the Osa Penninsula, Los Mogos and Piedras Blancas National Park. This camera has documented the first photo of a tyra, black jaguarundi and a margay in the Piedras Blancas National Park along with many supporting species like the Agouti, Great Curassow, Collard Peccary, Paca and Tyra.

This photo of a jaguar was taken on our trail #2 April 2015 at 10:00 at night.

We now have documented all 5 cat species of Costa Rica at Saladero Ecolodge.
