CARRERA-TREVINO, Rogelio; CAVAZOS, Juan J.; BRIONES-SALAS, Miguel  and  LIRA-TORRES, Iván. Jaguar Panthera onca (Carnivora: Felidae) records from Cumbres de Monterrey National Park, Nuevo León, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2016, vol.87, n.1, pp.270-275. ISSN 2007-8706.

We present the first records of jaguar (Panthera onca) in Cumbres de Monterrey National Park, Nuevo León, Mexico. We placed remote cameras between 2013 and 2015 in oak forest habitats of the Park and obtained 15 pictures and 7 videos of 4 different individuals of the species. Our results constitute the first evidence of a resident population of jaguars in this protected area and the northernmost population of the species along the Gulf of Mexico. Strenthenging of conservation measures such as environmental services compensation, livestock compensation programs, conflict management and law enforcement are needed to protect this jaguar population.
