Jaguars have recently been spotted crossing the U.S.-Mexico border for the first time in about 40 years. This is good news to conservationists working to create a permanent home in the feline’s native range—a corridor that stretches from Mexico to Argentina.

But the task is not as simple as setting land aside. While camera traps and satellite tags gather crucial population data, sensitive political battles are waged with private landowners and governments. The truth is, aiding predators is a hard sell.

Wild Chronicles follows one man’s attempts to save the largest cat in the Americas, and discover what scientists are hoping will allow jaguars, and the people that share their land, to thrive.
