Last month, CBS ‘60 Minutes’ aired an exciting update on Noca - the first female jaguar collared as part of Panthera’s Pantanal Jaguar Project, which was featured on the 2010 ‘60 Minutes’ program, In Search of the Jaguar.
Re-airing original footage of Noca’s collaring from 2010, the update highlighted recent footage of Noca with a new mate – a resident male jaguar whom locals have nicknamed ‘Teo’ – and the exciting discovery that Noca had given birth to a cub since her collaring.
Our photo of the day is a breathtaking camera trap shot of jaguar in Ecuador’s Yasuní National Park, taken by Panthera's Media Director and National Geographic photographer, Steve Winter. Yasuní National Park is one of the Amazon's last wild frontiers and home to wild cats like jaguars, pumas, and ocelots!

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.
Watch Panthera’s new video from the field of Noca - the first female jaguar collared as part of Panthera’s Pantanal Jaguar Project – playing with her new mate, a resident male jaguar, in the Brazilian 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!

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.
Enjoy our photo of the day of two jaguars, known as Wilson and Julianna by Panthera's scientists, resting in the Brazilian Pantanal! Panthera's Conservation Ranch Program Advisor, Rafael Hoogesteijn, took this photo just meters from the jaguars, which are being monitored through Panthera’s Pantanal Jaguar Project.

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.
