First research with margays (Leopardus wiedii) in the Brazilian Pampa using mix telemetry (GPS/VHF). Currently we are monitoring 21 individuals in two sites of the biome. The research is marked by the trap success, with an average of 1 cat trapped every 3 nights, but in one occasion there were 5 individuals captured in a single night!!
The design of the traps used doesn't allow the cat to kill the bait. On average we gather 180 locations per month of the monitored individuals
