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: NJP and the Mexican conservation organization Naturalia established the 55,000-acre Northern Jaguar Reserve, which boasts the highest number of northern jaguar sightings over the last decade, including females and cubs. This is 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
