Northern Jaguar Reserve

The dream that is now the Northern Jaguar Reserve took shape in 2003. NJP set out to create an expansive stronghold for these vulnerable wild cats. Following a relatively brief and intensive fundraising campaign, we expanded the sanctuary in early 2008 by acquiring Rancho Zetasora, the 35,000-acre ranch adjacent to Los Pavos.

Since the purchase of Rancho Zetasora, four neighboring ranches were purchased, so that today the total size of the Northern Jaguar Reserve is 58,000 acres.
