Tambopata Jaguars - Jaguars by Russ Heselden
  Tambopata Jaguars  (2013)
Subject: Jaguars
Dimensions (inches): 12 x 16
Medium: Mixed media on canvasboard (unframed)
Description: In the summer of 2013 I took part in a small group expedition to southern Peru. Our party was in a motorised boat on the Tambopata River, making our way from Posada Amazonas to the Tambopata Research Centre. Suddenly the navigator yelled 'Jaguar!' and the resulting scramble by the passengers almost overturned the boat. A beautiful female Jaguar was watching us from the riverbank; as she turned and walked away we thought she was going to melt back into the forest, but in fact she returned with an almost full-grown cub. There was no time for anything but the briefest series of sketches, so much of the painting is drawn from my photographs. Jaguars still have a relatively wide range in Central and South America but their numbers are in decline due to habitat loss and fragmentation. The species is considered 'near-threatened' by the IUCN.
