Trade in soybean and beef affect Jaguars more than one less trafficking

 

Alfredo Romero-Muñoz, Ronaldo G Morato, Fernando Tortato, Tobias Kuemmerle

 

Summary: The increasing trade in jaguar body parts to China have drawn global conservation attention. However, we argue that the trade in soybean and beef pose far greater threats to jaguars through increasing habitat destruction and direct killing that they promote. Conservation should focus on these threats and their interactions with trafficking.
