Fiao guided @stevewinterphoto SteveWinter – National Geographic around 20 years ago when Steve Winter visited the Pantanal for the first time to document the jaguar. Fiao had a special method to find the jaguar for Steve Winter using this bucket to call the jaguar. It was the first NatGeo story on jaguars pusblished.
Fiao passed his knowledge about the Pantanal and jaguars on to his nephew Fabricio Dorileo who is a second generation of local passionate guides in the Pantanal. His family are in the Pantanal for over 2 centuries and are wellknown in the area for there conservation efforts and knowledge on jaguars.
Fabricio Dorileo has amazing knowledge on jaguars and is been guiding for more than 13 years, including for many broadcasting agencies (Natgeo, BBC, NHK Tokio) to document the jaguar and offers specialized pantanal jaguar tours for both individuals and groups.
In 2016 Steve Winter visited the Pantanal again, this time together with Bertie Gregory to document the jaguar in both photo- and video. Fabricio Dorileo guided them for 50 days to provide them with many amazing jaguar sightings and possibilities to document unique jaguar behaviour.
