November 29 is Now International Jaguar Day11/29/18
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), Panthera and government representatives from 14 jaguar range states have announced the creation of the first-ever International Jaguar Day.
Celebrated annually on November 29, this day will raise awareness about threats facing the jaguar, conservation efforts ensuring its survival and the role of the jaguar as a keystone species whose presence is indicative of a healthy ecosystem – the foundation for a sustainable future for wildlife and people alike.
In an unprecedented global commitment to saving the jaguar, the coalition of NGOs and jaguar range state representatives have joined together to launch the Jaguar 2030 Conservation Roadmap for the Americas. (See the Road Map in Spanish here.)
This bold plan seeks to strengthen the Jaguar Corridor, ranging from Mexico to Argentina, by securing 30 priority jaguar conservation landscapes by the year 2030, and more.
