Mario Haberfeld

Mario was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and since childhood has always had two passions, race cars and wildlife. After a career of almost 20 years in motor sport with stints in F1 and Indy Car, Mario has now fully devoted his career to wildlife conservation. Mario has travelled widely in order to support and learn from various conservation projects worldwide; this has included time with gorillas, tigers, polar bears, pandas, leopards and lions to name but a few. Mario is now focused on helping to preserve and add value to the wildlife of his country of birth, Brazil. In 2011 following multiple visits to a reserve in South Africa where a habituation initiative had proved successful with leopards Mario set up Project Oncafari. Over six years on his mission to habituate jaguar in the Pantanal, and promote eco-tourism in the area, is a huge success.
Mario and the Oncafari team will spend three days with the group at Caiman Ecolodge, tracking and monitoring jaguar.
