Help Protect the Jaguar

Jaguars once roamed freely round the Amazon, but their habitat is slowly being destroyed which is threatening their very existence. These beautiful and elegant creatures are currently on the endangered list and together with WWF you can help protect them.

You can adopt a Jaguar from just £3.00 a month. The money will be spent replenishing the Amazon rainforest to provide habitation not just for Jaguars – but for 1 in 10 of all wild species on Earth!

Jaguar Facts

5 Jaguar Facts

  1. Jaguars are solitary animals and prefer to be alone except during mating season.
  2. The jaguar is usually a land based hunter but will sometimes climb trees and attack their prey from above.
  3. Unlike most other big cats, the jaguar loves the water and enjoys going for a swim, sometimes even hunting for fish in ponds and pools.
  4. Jaguars are distinguished from other big cats by the shape of their spots which look like roses. As a result, their spots are called rosettes.
  5. It is estimated that there are less than 15,000 jaguars remaining in the wild.

Why Adopt a Jaguar?

The jaguar is one of the most elusive of all the big cats. Unfortunately, that has not prevented the species from being all but wiped out from the most Northern part of the territory it used to roam. The species now occupies less than half of the territory that is historically considered its habitat. The last major stronghold of the jaguar is the Amazon and the Pantanal, an area spread across Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. 90% of a jaguar’s range is within the Amazon rainforest which is being destroyed at a rapid rate. If the species is to survive it needs our help so here are five reasons why you should adopt a jaguar.

1. Help WWF Stop Habitat Destruction

The Amazon is being deforested at an astonishing pace. As corporations seek to plunder the region’s natural resources, every minute an area the size of three football pitches is being cleared. This has huge implications not just for the jaguar but for the world’s biodiversity in general. Nevertheless, it is critical that the jaguar has access to rainforest otherwise it will not survive. You can help WWF conserve the species natural habitat by adopting a jaguar and hopefully ensuring they are around for many more generations to come.

2. Prevent Conflict With Humans

Jaguars and humans come into conflict because they both hunt the same prey. This means that humans consider the jaguar as competition for food. Jaguars sometimes kill cattle and this means ranchers see them as pests and kill them in retaliation. By adopting a jaguar, you will be funding WWF’s efforts to educate local communities about how important the species is to the ecosystem. This should reduce human-jaguar conflict and prevent retaliatory killings as well.

3. Help Stop Jaguar Poaching

Unfortunately for the jaguar, its body parts are prized in Eastern medicine, which makes use of its paws, teeth and other parts to treat diseases. This is a real tragedy because such treatments are little more than a myth that results in the killing of a beautiful big cat. By adopting a jaguar, you will be helping WWF in its effort to stop poaching of an animal which is wholly unnecessary.

4. Help Prevent Population Fragmentation

Another consequence of deforestation is that jaguars become increasingly isolated and their population fragments. This has implications for breeding and makes them vulnerable to other types of threats. By adopting a jaguar, you will be funding WWF’s efforts to establish habitat corridors for wildlife and train local communities to monitor this iconic species so that the population remains stable or even manages to grow.

5. A Jaguar Adoption Is A Really Thoughtful Gift

Sure you could give a gadget to someone you care about on their birthday or for Christmas, but you don’t have to think very hard to do that do you? If you want an affordable gift idea that radiates thoughtfulness whilst also serving a greater purpose, adopt a jaguar through WWF. The recipient will receive a bunch of goodies plus they will get updates on how the conservation process is going and we guarantee they will love that.

UN Withdraws Funding For Asiatic Cheetah Conservation Dooming The Species To Extinction

The UN has decided it will no longer fund conservation efforts to protect the Asiatic cheetah and experts are warning that species is on the brink of extinction. There are less than 50 wild Asiatic cheetahs left and all of them are in Iran. Conservationists are worried that unless immediate action is taken there is almost no chance that one of Earth’s most distinctive and graceful hunters will survive.

Sumatran Rhinos Have Been On The Decline Since The Last Ice Age

Scientists have managed to decode the Sumatran rhino’s genome. The species is one of the most endangered on the planet and according to its genetic blueprint, its population has been steadily falling for quite a while now. The species population decline began to occur during the last Ice Age when its habitat effectively shrank. Since then humans have been the problem causing populations to fall further. It is estimated that there are fewer than 250 wild Sumatran rhinos left.

Tourists Come Across Unique Sight Of 200 Polar Bears Feasting On Whale Carcass

A group of people on a boat tour in the far Eastern Russian Arctic didn’t know what they were seeing for a good few minutes until they realised that there were as many as 200 polar bears roaming on the slope of a mountain. The tourists said they were gobsmacked by what can only be described as a completely unique situation. The bears were there to feed on the carcass of a bowhead whale that had washed ashore. After eating their fill, they then rested near the source of their meal. The group of bears included a number of families including a couple of mothers who were being trailed by four cubs each.

Trophy Hunting Could Push Species Into Extinction

A new study suggests that hunters who pick targets that stand out from the crowd because of their lustrous manes or impressive horns could well result in species extinction. The research claims that if hunters remove just 5 per cent of high-quality males, then there is a risk that the entire population could be wiped out given that many species already face intense pressure from a fast-changing world.
