A Message from Panthera's Executive Director of Jaguar Programs, Dr. Howard Quigley: Real Recovery for Jaguars in the Pantanal
Dear Friend of Panthera,
CBS '60 Minutes' recently aired an exclusive update on Noca, the first female jaguar radio-collared through Panthera's Pantanal Jaguar Project, featured in a 2010 CBS story.
Well worth a follow-up, the '60 Minutes' program highlighted the exciting birth of Noca's female cub, along with recent footage of her mating with a resident male. Noca's story represents a much larger success - a real recovery for jaguars across Panthera's sites in the Pantanal.
Make a contribution and help us continue to protect jaguars, like Noca, in the Pantanal.
We would like to send a friendly reminder that the proposal deadline for the Small Cat Action Fund (SCAF) is this coming Friday, March 1st. All who would like to apply for SCAF should submit their proposals on this day.
The Small Cat Action Fund is a unique grants program established by Panthera, with the oversight of the IUCN Cat Specialist Group, which supports in situ conservation and research activities on small cat species. Open to any qualified individual or institution, SCAF awards are given for one year, but may be extended to subsequent years, contingent upon awardees’ performance and results.
