Panthera’s Jaguar Corridor Initiative Featured in Guyana’s Sunday Times Magazine

Panthera

This month, Guyana’s Sunday Times Magazine published an article on the country’s and the Americas’ largest wild cat – the elusive jaguar - known regionally as “turtle tiger”, among other nicknames. The article, entitled ‘Visit the Haven for the Elusive Jaguar,’ reports on the behavior and physical characteristics of the jaguar, which typically weigh in at 100-220 pounds, their choice of prey, interactions with local communities, and what Panthera is doing through the Jaguar Corridor Initiative to mitigate human-jaguar conflict and ‘connect and protect’ jaguars ranging from Mexico to Argentina to ensure the species’ genetic diversity, and long-term survival.
