The Onçafari Jaguar Project is one of the first of its kind in Latin America. Set up five years ago by Mario, a former professional racing driver who fell in love with African safaris as a young child, it's a non-profit organisation whose aim is to promote conservation through tourism and generate far-reaching associated benefits for the region.
Currently the team are working with two orphan female jaguars to return them to the wild. They were less than two months old when they were found and unlikely to have survived had they not been rescued.
Journey Latin America is delighted to be supporting Onçafari's latest project - for every booking made on our Wildlife Brazil: Jaguars of the Pantanal holiday, we'll donate US$100 to support the campaign.
Find out more about Onçafari from our Head of Product, who visited the region recently.
The projects target is $40,000 and Journey Latin America will support this campaign for its duration or for all booking made by 30 June 2018 and travelling before the end of 2018, whichever is to occur first. Donations of $100 will be made per booking and not per person.
