The Survival of the Jaguar

December 31, 2015

Our work is possible because of you. Thanks to your generous support, the Northern Jaguar Reserve encompasses 55,000 acres and is home to jaguars, ocelots, and an amazingly rich diversity of species. As we look back on 2015, we recognize how important the reserve has become as it grows and matures as a model sanctuary for wildlife in a region where poaching and poisoning remain ongoing threats. The northern jaguar’s survival is in all of our hands.

In the coming year, along with the guardianship of the reserve, we will:

• Work side by side with local ranchers to create an expanded safe zone for jaguars traveling through this remote, rugged landscape. Four new ranches want to join our groundbreaking Viviendo con Felinos project.

• Spread our educational outreach to schools and livestock organizations in the region. We are getting kids outdoors and showing them that it is exciting to live in a place where jaguars still roam.

• Take steps to develop a better scientific understanding of the western hemisphere’s largest feline and its habitat. Our comprehensive planning process will bring together scientists and conservation planners from the U.S. and Mexico.

The Northern Jaguar Project has come to a crucial point in our development where we need to reach out to a much larger audience and expand our sphere of influence. That’s where you come in. Big leaps like these can only be made with your support. Anyone wishing to make a tax-deductible, end-of-year contribution in these last hours of 2015 can donate online here >>.

On behalf of all the jaguars who call the reserve home, thank you. You are helping us save the world one big cat at a time!
