Jaguar Adoption Kit
Today, jaguars have been almost completely eliminated from the United States and are endangered throughout their historic range. Habitat destruction and poaching have put these rare cats on the run and in peril. Jaguars are extremely rare in the U.S. and it is unknown how many jaguars actually exist throughout their range. They have long been prized for their beautiful and exotic fur and continue to fetch a high price on the black market. Another looming threat to jaguar recovery and survival is the proposed construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall which would further degrade and fragment key jaguar habitat by blocking important migration routes.
Your adoption supports our work to protect their current habitat and expand their range in the American Southwest. It also supports our work with communities and governments to protect jaguars in the southwestern U.S. and northern Mexico.
