Review for NORTHERN JAGUAR PROJECT, Tucson, AZ, USA
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.
