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.

Since I am a volunteer for Northern Jaguar Project, I see the outstanding work they are doing in conserving wild and natural land, saving the jaguar from extinction and providing a healthy ecosystem for so many plants and animals. At the same time, they are building a strong relationship with ranchers and residents nearby. Northern Jaguar Project provides incentives that have led to a change in attitude towards hunting. I see incredible photos of the variety of plant and animal life on the preserve and know that this organization is wholly committed to its goal of saving the jaguar and its habitat

I am very proud to be a supporter of this hands-on ecological/conservation organization involved in preserving and expanding critical habitat for the northernmost population of one of the most beautiful and dramatic of all New World mammals. I am very hopeful that as a result of the work of the Northern Jaguar Project these magnificent cats may reclaim a portion of their historic range in the United States.

The NJP is staffed by diligent and hardworking individuals. Always a pleasure to visit the field site and a day does not go by that we have not learned something new. Additionally, they do an amazing job working with the scientific community but their outreach with the local community is groundbreaking.

I have served as the Southwest Representative of Defenders of Wildlife since 1993, and I am affiliated with Northern Jaguar Project (NJP) because it plays a critically important role of immediately protecting the northernmost remaining population of jaguars in the world and dozens of other rare and important species. This is a key component of a broader recovery strategy developed and implemented by several other cooperating organizations. NJP also supports high-importance field research which is being used to guide landscape-scale conservation programs, and is working cooperatively with landowners/ranchers, agencies and other conservation organizations to ensure their great work expands to provide benefits throughout the U.S./Mexico border region. The group is directed by an all-volunteer board, with program implementation overseen by a small, but deeply dedicated staff. It truly is a lean and mean organization which is providing renewed hope for recovery of the American jaguar and all it represents.

The Great!

I've experienced NJP as a board member and as vice president, as well as a leader of another U.S.-based non-profit . I helped initiate NJP's current "Jaguar Guardian" program, and the Foto Felinos camera project, which rewards area landowners for photos of jaguars and other cats as an incentive to conserve them. Through these projects I work consistently with NJP staff and partners, and can testify to their creativity, effectiveness and dedication.

Help prepare for the long-term. This group is highly successful with a bright future, and planning now will help ensure that NJP's successes expand to become even more important to wildlife conservation.

As a board member I feel very fortunate to be associated with the other individuals that comprise the board of Northern Jaguar Project. They are dynamic and dedicated, recognized experts in their fields, and give to the project a lot of experience and knowledge, as well as a lot of hard work.
I personally worked early-on in identifying and purchasing the lands of the Northern Jaguar Reserve, which, along with local community based outreach and education, have been Northern Jaguar Project's greatest achievements. Together these projects should give permanent protection to the northernmost jaguar populations and all species under their umbrella. It has not been an easy task, and there is still a tremendous amount of work to be done, but 11 years after my first visit to the area, it is still sometimes hard to believe that we have a viable reserve in place and that the adjoining cattle ranching community is accepting our efforts and our assistance.
One of the keys to success has been our partnering with Naturalia A.C., a Mexican non-profit, to hold title to the reserve and help administer programs. With Naturalia's help we are better able to use Mexican professionals, students, and local labor, and thus the project is not seen so much as a foreign intrusion.

I got in contact with the Northern Jaguar Project when their board members approached the conservation organization I work for (Naturalia), looking for a partner to implement an ambitious conservation strategy for the northernmost population of the endangered jaguar in the Mexican State of Sonora. It was year 2003 and we had never worked together before, but they looked very genuine and committed to this goal. They told us that if we were able to raise the first amount of funds to purchase the first piece of land to create the Northern Jaguar Reserve, they would be able to fundraise to purchase additional land to increase the size of the reserve. We launched that strategy together and were able to purchase the first 10,000 acres for the reserve then NJP moved very fast to raise the additional funds to help us acquire another 35,000 acres. Our relationship has been very honest and straightforward and thus we have established a very functional partnership both to manage the reserve and to implement additional projects to effectively protect the jaguar population in this region. With just a few years old, NJP has become one of the most respected conservation organizations in Southern US and Northern Mexico. I have been able to work with both the staff and board of this young organization and am able to say that all of them are honest people entirely devoted to nature conservation and specially to secure a future for jaguars.

increase the size of its staff to make them capable of additional work and to increase their range of operation
