Costa Rica has been getting a lot of positive press over the months. I have to believe in their efforts.

Arizona Fish and wildlife shot the only Jaguar in our state saying is was sick, but it was only dehydrated. We must save this beautiful animal. It's very important to the eco-system. Man, as far as I can see, doesn't contribute anything to the eco-system.

Great news and story Cher! I love Jaguars and the Mayan myth about them was very cool. It's great that Panthera's on the scene!

"Both groups in the partnership “commit to carrying out rigorous scientific and conservation initiatives that will help in securing protected wild lands linking jaguar populations in Costa Rica”. Impressive and encouraging!
