that are in protected areas or "Jaguar Conservation Units" (JCU=>50 adult jaguars), so the constant flux of jaguars that inhabit those areas is allowed. The implementation of the Jaguar Corridor entails the possibility of species dispersal through areas that are not protected, and it also seeks to maintain human productivity in a way in which jaguars may find suitable habitats that contain enough prey without being persecuted by humans. However, the initiative will only be feasible in areas of zoned mosaic landscapes where better agricultural, mining, and energy practices are implemented.
It has the goal of reestablishing the connection between the Andes-Amazon-Atlantic7 ecosystems in order to guarantee the supply of ecosystem services of the Amazon basin, along with searching for innovative strategies against climate change. Such connectivity is essential in order to secure the stability of water cycles, conservation and resilience of biodiversity, and human well-being. The initiative promotes articulations between indigenous peoples, local populations, productive sectors, organizations, and governments, an aspect that allows for recalling the possibility of human activity in harmony with the supporting natural system. The Path of the Anacondas captures the concept of connectivity currently present in indigenous cultures such as the Tucano Oriental of the Vaupés, which alludes to the vital energy of the jungle that flows from the sea to the mountain ranges.
