The jaguar has been nearly driven to extinction in the Argentine Chaco. Investigators speculate that less than 20 individuals survive across a very extensive territory. In September 2019, the tracks of a jaguar were found in Impenetrable National Park for the first time. Quick action by Rewilding Argentina obtained video documentation of the individual, and tracking via a satellite radio collar, with the goal of breeding the wild male with female jaguars born in captivity, in order to generate a sustainable population in El Impenetrable National Park. 600 kilometers east, 7 jaguars are getting ready to be released after decades of local extinction in Ibera Park. In the long term, these two new populations will be a part of a jaguar corridor in northern Argentina.
