Vote to Name the Jaguar through Monday, March 7th


The voting portion of Panthera’s ‘Name the Jaguar’ contest ends Tuesday, March 8th. Be sure to vote for your favorite name for the first female jaguar collared by Panthera in the Pantanal. Right now, the name ‘Noca’ has a nice lead over the other three names. ‘Noca’ is a play on the word ‘onca,’ which is the scientific species name for the jaguar – Panthera onca – and also means ‘jaguar’ in Portuguese. Learn what the other three finalist names mean  - Iara, Artemis and Amarantha - and cast your vote!
