Thanks to a huge outpouring of support from our fans, Panthera has just won a $10,000 Chase Community Giving grant that will go to support the protection of jaguars and their habitat across Latin America!
From September 6th-19th, the Chase Community Giving program allowed the public to vote for their favorite charities on Facebook to receive a portion of $5 million in grants, distributed to the 196 charities with the most votes. Competing against thousands of other organizations, Panthera urged our supporters to cast their votes and share news of the contest with friends and family in person, via email, Facebook, Twitter and other platforms. Thanks to these efforts, Panthera earned 1,455 votes and placed 142nd out of 196th!!!
The $10,000 grant will go directly to the field to support the jaguar conservation work being carried out through Panthera’s Jaguar Corridor Initiative.
On behalf of the world's jaguars, we thank you for supporting Panthera and helping to make a true difference for the future of the Americas’ largest wild cat – the elusive jaguar. As a token of our appreciation, we’d like to offer a free jaguar screensaver and computer desktop background, which can be downloaded below:
