I am happy to report that jaguars have recently been featured by two well-known environmental groups: Defenders of Wildlife and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

Both organizations have given jaguars a special spotlight in their most recent newsletters. I received the Fall 2015 issue of Defenders of Wildlife’s publication Defenders a few days ago, and it contains a brief summary of Panthera oncas conservation status. Likewise, WWF’s latest e-news update includes a brief blurb about this incredible species.

I hope this trend continues. Jaguars are endlessly fascinating animals, and the more people know about them the better.
