The Northern Jaguar Project is doing some of the most important conservation work in our hemisphere. By preserving habitat for these fascinating and beautiful cats, the NJP also preserves a portion of the uniquely diverse Sinaloan Thornscrub ecosytem. They are doing what I wanted to do after first visiting this region nearly 30 years ago. And they are doing it better...working to ensure local support, doing restoration projects, making inventories of this ecological crossover between the neotropics and temperate regions, etc. Follow your favorite jaguar by trail camera on their website, or check your knowledge of northern Mexico's wonderfully varied plant and animal communities against their species checklist. These folks work on a shoestring where land can be purchased for less than $50/acre. As a friend once said to me, "If it doesn't hurt a little bit, you probably haven't given enough". So give until it hurts, then be sure and put them in your will.

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.

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.

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 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.

I had an opportunity to attend the presentation at ASU by some of the bikers who rode 350 miles in support of the jaguar. I was amazed at the slide presentation showing these beautiful creatures roaming freely in the Mexican wilderness preserve. I admire the dedication of all of the participants to recover land for the jaguar so that someday my children might see this wonderful animal in the wild.

I am a docent at Reid Park Zoo (Tucson) and helped get other docents to the NJP presentation. It was standing room only - a very good presentation and lots of interest from all attendees.

Hearing a rancher from Mexico who used to kill jaguars but now protects them.

Buy more land to expand the jaguar preserve.

1st saw a tiny squib in the Albuquerque paper, met US & Mexican reps at a presentation held at the zoo. Next met more of the personnel at another meeting in Santa Fe. Was duly impressed by their genuine love of the project and that they were doing it all on faith and a prayer for the animals, not to have a cushy job or line their pockets. Have carefully watched them grow, obtain matching funds and fight the entrenched bureaucracy plus learn how to woo and win over foreign landowners who were absolutely key to completing the extended refuges. Please help them finish setting-up and funding proper management so that jaguars can once again safely traverse their native North American homelands.

were amazing as they operate on a barebones budget but work tirelessly with hearts as big as the whole outdoors with very little thanks other than the knowledge of their good deeds.
