Jaguars are famous for their speed and stealth, existing at the top of the food chain everywhere they call home. They are the biggest cat in the Americas, roaming through arid deserts, tropical rainforests, and everywhere in between.
However, Jaguars now occupy just 46% of their historic range. Deforestation has both destroyed jaguar habitat and made Jaguars an easier target for hunters and poachers. Today, they are facing extinction in the arid deserts of northern Mexico, as well as parts of Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay.
Project Wildcat, a Signature Program of GreaterGood.org, is working with ranchers in Sonora, Mexico to protect the majestic jaguar and other endangered species. In partnership with Primero Conservation, Project Wildcat will establish a 35,000 wildlife corridor in this critical region, allowing all predators (and prey) freedom to roam. In doing so, Project Wildcat is helping ranchers protect their land and keep jaguars safe.
