Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals, Protection of Endangered Species, Wildlife Preservation & Protection, Wildlife Sanctuaries

Mission: The mission of the Northern Jaguar Project (NJP) is to preserve and recover the world's northernmost population of the jaguar, its unique natural habitats, and native wildlife under its protection as a flagship, keystone, and umbrella species.

Results: The 55,000-acre Northern Jaguar Reserve boasts the highest number of northern jaguar sightings over the last decade, including females and cubs. This is likely the source population for jaguars migrating north and returning to the U.S. The reserve provides a core sanctuary that features an unparalleled mix of natural communities and is the centerpiece of our ongoing work to protect, maintain, and improve quality wildlife habitat. NJP further works with ranchers, schools, and local communities to promote effective jaguar conservation.

Geographic areas served: U.S.-Mexico borderlands

Programs: Reserve guardianship and expansion, wildlife monitoring, community outreach, environmental education, habitat restoration

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.
