I went down to the Northern Jaguar Preserve in Sonora to help with a project building adobe structures on the preserve. The land there is amazing and Naturalia and the Northern Jaguar Project are amazing stewards for it. Their work allows animals such as the jaguar a place to live and is encouraging relations between surrounding ranchers and the jaguars. They do amazing work and take very good care of their volunteers.

Northern Jaguar Project and Naturalia are the best chance for the Jaguar to return to the USA. EXTINCTION is real. Consider how much the southwest has lost over the years and help this cat!

My experience with NJP started with the death of the last jaguar in the USA--- his name was Macho B. The next event was a jaguar named Lucero who was in the Phoenix zoo who was given dental work after being caught in mexico by a rancher. I went to Phoenix and saw him guess who helped him get help? That was in part NJP-- These people need all the resources they obtain. They treat wildlife the way everybody should. Consider how the jaguar is hanging on a thread---- the constant war on wildlife. These people are beautiful.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my life waiting for the jaguars to come back to Arizona,New Mexico, and Texas

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to meet them all.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the way they treat wildlife.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

beautiful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy additional ranches.

Ways to make it better...

will be better when and if I can walk the ground myself.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

more and constant revenue stream, and people in the area supporting especially the children, our only chance for the jaguar.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Thank you Diana and Turtle

I believe the Northern Jaguar Project is making huge strides in conservation of the northernmost breeding area for jaguars, and I am honored to be involved with this nonprofit. What I think is special about the Northern Jaguar Project is they are thinking broadly, considering all aspects of what makes this special ecosystem tick. Not only are they directly concerned with the jaguars calling this area home, but also the condition of their habitat and ultimately, their prey populations. I am involved in helping with their Feline Photo project, where I help identify wildlife in photos and prepare files for each camera location. As a wildlife biologist myself, I very much agree with the approach to using motion-triggered cameras. Much information can be gained about a species (and its neighbors!) while being a safe and cost effective "hands-off" technique. Last November my husband (who's a restoration ecologist) and I had the opportunity to travel to the reserve and we enjoyed every minute of exploring such a wild, beautiful place. Our mission to traveling there and meeting with Rick Williams, the reserve manager, was to discuss some of the options of improving the landscape in the reserve. They discussed areas of fire danger, slowing the progression of non-native grasses, as well as replanting disturbed areas with native plants. Again, the Northern Jaguar Project is thinking of the ecosystem as a whole in this example, which I think is the reason they are able to make such strides in jaguar conservation efforts. The Northern Jaguar Project has our continued support!

I can't think of a better organization to be a part of. I know that everything I donate to them whether it be an insect guide or field clothing, will go to great use and will help in a small part to bring the Jaguar back to its northern most habitat in the USA. Hats off to all the people at NJP for all their efforts in making this beautiful cat a part of Americana again.

I have worked with the Northern Jaguar Project on and off for the past year. I have been involved in conservation in Sonora for the past decade. NJP is one of the most effective and professional organizations in the Hemisphere. Their work has done more for conservation in Sonora than anyone else. They are a pleasure to work with, and an inspiration.

As a volunteer since 2005, I have had nothing but positive interactions with NJP. They have an incredible vision and niche, doing more to conserve the northern jaguar than most other efforts combined. Their dedication to collaboration with the local communities of northern Sonora, in addition to their assistance in conservation land acquisitions, has engendered an unprecedented level of appreciation and support for jaguar conservation far outside the boundaries of the reserve.

The NJP does a fantastic job where no one else is willing to step up and help. As past president of the Jaguar Club of Central Arizona (the automobile!) I met Diane and Turtle a few years ago and signed up as a monthly donor. For the cost of a glass of wine every month, the work they provide for saving one of the last habitats of New World great cats is priceless. Once gone, there is no turning the clock back. The presentation for the Jaguar Clubs of North America national meeting was great and hopefully the message will be heard across the country.

I was invited to go along on a trip to Sonora, Mexico in March of 2012 to volunteer with the Northern Jaguar Project. The group was helping make adobe bricks for some structures being built on one of the old ranches on N.J.P's 90,000 some acres of land. I had a really great time. The volunteers from the states and the crew that lived on site were all really awesome and we all had a great time and made 2003 bricks (a few more than they needed for the first building!). It was so beautiful in this amazing "edge" of two climates, where the arid Sonoran desert meets the rainforest! The flora and fauna mixture is something you just have to see to believe (oaks mixed in with mesquites, palo verde, organ pipe cactus, native palms...and a mixture of beautiful birds and butterflies, etc.). There is fresh water from a spring running through the land and a river. This is a magical place and the most remote I have ever been (4+ hours out of Sahuaripa on a one way road out and back). They are working with the local community and farmers, educating and trying to preserve a space for the jaguars (didn't see any, except on their hidden cameras) and I recommend anyone who has a chance to go lend a hand, meet some cool people and experience this really special place!

The Northern Jaguar Project, and its in-country partner Naturalia, are working hand in hand and with surrounding neighbors and communities in Sonora to create the first vital link in what could become a wonderful wildlands corridor down the entire spine of the Sierra Madre Occidental in northwestern Mexico. By focusing conservation efforts on such a noble, charismatic, enigmatic creature, they are simultaneously providing an umbrella of protection for all forms of life in this immense stretch of the Sierra. I am impressed that NJP and Naturalia are educating children and adults alike about the incredible natural wealth of Sonora. Perhaps most important to me, NJP and Naturalia conduct themselves with humility and respect for local cultures and customs. I would like to see their conservation work emulated by other like-minded organizations in northwestern Mexico. I am proud to be a supporter of NJP.

I got to go down to the Jaguar reserve in Mexico and help build adobe bricks for a structure. It was an incredible trip. The Northern Jaguar Project is doing an amazing job of protecting a large important tract of land. It is very unique biologically and important for so many species including Jaguar to have an area that that is kept free of cattle. They work very hard and do good work.
