Save the jaguar and help the Matsés tribe in Amazonia !
WHO ARE WE ?
Our story begins in 2018, when our founders Dennis, Hector and Guillaume set off on a 5-week expedition to one of the most remote part of the rainforest in the Reserva Nacional Matsés among the matses tribe looked relentlessly for signs of jaguars, to ultimately try to photograph it. Their quest for the magnificent jaguar will lead to a sad-but-common realisation, only a few of them left. There are probably many reasons for this but discussions in camp revealed one of them could be that they are sometimes shot by other village hunters, fearing being attacked. A reflection which led, to the creation of our association : Jaguar Matsés Connection.
Our association have two main purposes.
The first one is to save the Amazon jaguars which are threatened by the surrounding tribes who hunt them for various reasons. The objective is to protect this graceful animal which is unfortunately in the process of disappearing. To do this, we are contacting the surrounding tribes: the Matsés, in order to establish a dialogue with them and limit the hunting of jaguars. At the same time, we track down the remaining jaguars to ensure their survival.
Secondly, we take the opportunity to help these Matsés tribes who are far from any infrastructure. They are in dire need of care, medicine, materials... We also help them by providing them with these essential goods. This approach allows us to make the Matsés tribe and the jaguars live in harmony by making sure they have everything they need.
We need you to help us in this adventure !
WE NEED YOUR HELP !
Today we need your help to save the jaguar and help the Matsés tribe. We need sufficient resources to carry out expeditions and to have the necessary equipment to pursue our missions. The donations collected thanks to you and to this kitty would allow us to finance and realize the following missions:
- From 1000€ collected: we will have the necessary funds to buy cameras and specific equipment to watch over the remaining jaguars in the region and save them.
- From 2000€ collected: we will be able to provide the Matsés with more goods: medicines, equipment, comfort... in order to improve their living conditions and help them.
- Finally, if we raise more than 3000€, we will be able to establish sustainable means of communication and meetings with the Matses and their families in order to best respond to their needs.
