    After the Ministry of Environment and Energy says there is a decline of jaguars in Corcovado making environment authorities pay more attention to the problem, which they feel could be associated with the hunting of wild pigs in the park.

    The Deputy Minister of Environment, Ana Lorena Guevara, said that this situation is bound to other illegal activities such as illegal logging and also mentioned that these effects go hand in hand with culture and social difficulties in neighboring areas.

    According to Guevara, the problem might not necessarily be linked to the decline of the pigs, however there is a strong warning as these are the main food of the Jaguar and even park rangers have also warned about the increasing number of hunters.

    She also said that being a National Park so extensive, the work of MINAE officials are often hampered by this situation, as well as locals who establish camps and besides looking gold basins rivers are feeding of these animals.

    For this reason the ministry will increase patrols, especially with flight hours, and a study guide is intended to determine the presence and estimate true number on the peccaries (wild pig) population.

    The ministry wants to go after more people doing these gold operations, this activity produces sedimentation and pollution in general throughout the park.
