ADOPT A JAGUAR

The jaguar is the largest cat in the Americas, growing more than six feet long and weighing up to 300 pounds. Often confused with leopards, jaguars can be distinguished by their larger heads and powerful jaws, sturdier bodies, shorter legs, and characteristic dark rosettes on their coats. A small percentage of jaguars are all-black, these are commonly referred to as black panthers.

One of the main threats to jaguars is habitat loss and fragmentation. The destruction of their forest habitat is also leading to increased conflict between jaguars and humans; jaguars are considered pests in some regions, and may be shot on sight due to fear or concern for livestock.

YOUR ADOPTION WILL HAVE A MASSIVE IMPACT

Funds from your adoption will support Jaguars in the Fringe, a project that works to protect the vanishing jaguars of Argentina, in partnership with WildCRU, Argentina’s Administración de Parques Nacionales (National Parks Administration), and Fondation Segré.  You can help protect wild jaguars by adopting the Jaguar Family below.

 

JAGUAR FAMILY

This project works to protect the declining jaguars in Argentina by reducing habitat loss, degradation and fragmentation, enabling prey base recovery and reducing retaliatory killings. 

Help us safeguard wild jaguars.
