Jaguars have been born in an Argentine wetland 70 years after they went extinct from the area.
The jaguars were born in Ibera Park in humid, verdant northeastern Argentina following a successful rewilding program.
Overjoyed conservationists released motion-triggered video footage from a wildlife camera showing one of the parents walking across a path with a cub in its mouth.
The species, categorized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature as “near-threatened,” vanished from the area seven decades earlier.
Ibera Park is one of South America’s key wetlands and the recent jaguar births herald the return of its top predator.
