Resumen

Poco se conoce sobre el estado de conservación de las poblaciones de jaguar y pecarí de labio blanco al occidente de los Andes en el Ecuador. Muestreamos las dos especies en los cuatro remanentes de bosque más grandes del Ecuador occidental, utilizando entrevistas a la gente local, senderos de reco- nocimiento y trampas fotográficas. Las dos especies fueron detectadas únicamente en uno de los remanentes (Reserva Ecológica Cotacachi-Cayapas y su zona de amortiguamiento un área de 2500 km2). Aparentemente, ambas especies han sido ya extirpadas de los otros tres remanentes grandes de bosque en la región y su persistencia a largo plazo depende de acciones de conservación inmediatas en la Reserva Ecológica Cotacachi-Cayapas.
