What is Fauna & Flora doing to save ocelots?
Fauna & Flora is helping to preserve and protect key areas of forest that are home to ocelots. We’re working with law enforcement to stand up to illegal logging, and helping clamp down on illegal trade in the region.
But it’s simply not enough – we need more funding to step up our work to combat the horrific rate of habitat loss.
Through your donations, Fauna & Flora needs to get essential supplies into the hands of dedicated rangers so they can expand their patrols and prevent the ocelot’s home from being torn apart.
Wardens must traverse challenging terrain and spend many days and nights camped out in the rainforest. It is essential they are supplied with the equipment they need to do so.
What do wardens need?
Wardens need a sleeping bag, rucksack and raincoat to allow them to withstand the challenging conditions of their work.
In addition, wardens need GPS kits in order to navigate what is often dense, unmarked jungle. This equipment allows them to coordinate their movements and vastly improves the effectiveness of their work.
If we can get this gear into their hands, they can step up their operations to protect ocelot habitat from threats like illegal logging, and help keep ocelots safe.
