Deforestation, ranching and suburban developments take away the habitats of the Jaguars. Hope something can be done soon for them. Thanks Cher.

What's so sad is that all of the people who are tearing up the forest think they are involved in "progress," and refuse to hear otherwise. And when their progress is proven not to be, it will be too late to go back. So sad.

"A study by the Brazilian conservation authority Cenap indicated the adult jaguar population in the region may have fallen to just 250, "an 80 percent slide over the past 15 years."

Very tragic state of affairs. True, Tamia T, this is not progress when tearing up the forests, it is not ensuring the future survival of a fascinating big cat and so many other species involved in the area.

Spam flagged, too bad they did not become extinct (fake profiles) and not wildlife.

The government needs to stop illegal loggers, poachers, and ranchers, and whoever else is killing the jaguars!
