Partners

Society is indeed a contract... It is a partnership in all science; a partnership in all art; a partnership
in every virtue, and in all perfection."  E. Burke.
 
  In order to achieve our stated mission effectively, we have teamed with a group of enthusiastic entrepreneurs whose mission is to conserve and restore critical tropical forest habitat within the Mamoní Valley Preserve in the Republic of Panama. 
 
Project Partners
  Mamoní Valley Preserve and Earth Train are dedicated to promoting biocultural leadership and engaging in large-scale land conservation and habitat restoration within the 11,500ha Upper Mamoní Valley Watershed. Vital to our wildlife research is the support of donors such as Panthera and Dr. Anthony Giordano, Founder and Executive Director of Society for the Preservation of Endangered Carnivores & their International Ecological Study (S.P.E.C.I.E.S.). Together, we are working to help ensure a future for jaguars.
Media Supporters

Affiliate Partners
Our affiliate partners support our work from abroad, providing legal advise and other business related assistance.
Research Associates
  Our research associates support our work on the field, and conduct their own studies.  We work together to understand the ecology of an iconic species that lives in the Mamoni Valley Preserve, the jaguar as well as other large carnivores.
  Dr. Jennifer McCarthy, and undergraduate researcher Conner Maxwell from the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology of the University of Delaware are joining efforts with Kaminando in setting camera traps in the Panamanian cloud forest to get candid photos of jaguarundis. Imagery that will be used to obtain population density estimates for the species, and to help direct conservation strategies for this rare felid.
