A Message from Panthera's Executive Director of Jaguar Programs, Dr. Howard Quigley: Real Recovery for Jaguars in the Pantanal

Panthera

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.

Our photo of the day is a stunning shot of a male jaguar near Fazenda Porto Jofre, a cattle ranch where Panthera's scientists are working in the Brazilian Pantanal to learn more about jaguar ecology and implement strategies to reduce conflict between jaguars and local ranchers. Just after the photo was taken, this jaguar was seen leaping into the river to hunt a caiman!

A Message from Panthera's Vice President, Dr. George Schaller: Hope for Jaguars

Panthera

Dear Friend of Panthera,

After attending the signing of an historic conservation agreement between Panthera and the government of Guyana in Georgetown recently, I am filled with a new sense of hope for Latin America's jaguars.

Having spent more than fifty years working to conserve wildlife, I was struck by the significance of this occasion - for once we are not fighting on behalf of the last of a species or patch of forest, but are helping both a country and the jaguar towards a great and harmonious future.

And while I have seen how far we have come in preserving the species since the 1970s, when the rampant trade in jaguar pelts was brought to a halt, we still have so much to accomplish; and we need your support.

Join our Pledge to Protect Jaguars

Panthera

Dear Friend of Panthera,

I just returned from an inspiring trip to South America, where I joined the government of Guyana in signing an historic conservation agreement, strengthening protection of the Americas' largest wild cat - the jaguar.

Stemming from Panthera's recent jaguar research in this little-studied region, this agreement with Guyana is more significant than we could have dared to hope for. We now have an unprecedented opportunity to work with government officials to help identify new protected areas for jaguars, and to inform policy-making to ensure that conservation is taken into account.
