About 6 kilometers from the mainland, the Maracá-Jipioca Ecological Station, also called Island of Jaguars, has the largest number of jaguars per square meter in the world, according to ICMBio. There are 6.7 ounces per 100 square kilometers, according to a survey released this Thursday (2) by the Onça-Pintada Institute. The island covers around 60 thousand hectares and intrigues researchers, who seek to understand how the jaguars ended up there. Monitoring of jaguars at the ecological station has been carried out for 3 years, according to the Onça-Pintada Institute, which is based in Goiás. One of the objectives of the study is to understand how the species will behave with population growth. There are between 25 and 30 females at the site, which are capable of reproducing at least one offspring each year, says the Institute. The island is located in the Amazon River delta and is directly influenced by the river's flow. During monitoring, 7 jaguars were captured and received GPS collars for the study, which will show the animals' movement around the island.
