As China pours hundreds of billions of dollars into South American infrastructure, jaguars are disappearing from the continent’s protected rainforests. Targeted as substitutes for tiger parts, jaguars are being trafficked at dangerously high numbers. Spanning over mist-covered jungles in the Amazon to bustling wildlife markets in China, Tigre Gente follows the story of a Bolivian park ranger and a Hong Konger journalist fighting to stop the jaguar trade before it’s too late. Along the way, they grapple with questions of empathy, responsibility, and bridging a cultural gap to prevent the jaguar trade from spiralling out of control.
