RFI: Pumas and Torres del Paine NP

Greetings, I am on sabbatical this semester (woohoo!!) and I have decided that I really really want to search for pumas. It looks like Torres del Paine is the most well-known location. I poked around on the forum already and am interested in any additional information anyone can tell me. I sent a message to wayajapuma. Who has been there since the rules changed that now restrict off road travel? Any information will be appreciated. John Van Niel

    Hi John. If you are interested in pumas specifically you might want to consider Paraguay. We saw three there on a two-week trip in April, 2015, including one at extremely close range. Rob Foster, one of my companions on the trip, has posted a report on this website. Please feel free to contact me at ibtson@yahoo.com if you have any further questions.
    Regards, Ian Thompson
