Renowned for their power, strength, beauty, and grace, jaguars are vanishing throughout the Americas. Nowhere is this more apparent than the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. Since 2002, the Northern Jaguar Project (NJP) has been safeguarding jaguars in this region from illegal poaching, habitat loss, and other persistent threats. The centerpiece of NJP’s conservation work is the remote and exceedingly wild 58,000-acre Northern Jaguar Reserve, which boasts the highest number of northern jaguar sightings in recent years, including females and cubs. This is a great opportunity to meet and talk with a leader in jaguar conservation. For more information about NJP, go to https://www.northernjaguarproject.org/
Ms. Turtle Southern, the coordinator of the Northern Jaguar Project, will lead you on an illustrated journey to the Northern Jaguar Reserve, and discuss the NJP work with ranchers to minimize human-wildlife conflicts and with youth as conservation ambassadors and the work that still needs to be done.
