Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Liz Kimbrough. Kudos to the Costa Rican Government and Panthera for their efforts and to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for their recent proposal to establish a northern sanctuary by setting aside 838,232 acres in southern Arizona and New Mexico. Read and gladly noted.

"The MOU establishes an official jaguar conservation strategy in Costa Rica and recognizes a jaguar wildlife corridor as a conservation priority. According to a Panthera press release, 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 and beyond, as well as ensure that the development of land around these protected areas is done in a way to benefit both wildlife and local communities."

Contiguous protected areas in Costa Rica are a critical part of Panthera’s Jaguar Corridor Initiative , which involves governments, farmers, private landowners, ranchers, and other environmental organizations in the effort to ensure that jaguars have a zone of safe passage throughout their range, made up of 18 Latin American countries, from Northern Argentina to Mexico. Panthera is undertaking initiatives to protect the jaguars in 13 of the 18 countries."

One can only hope that the governments try to make this work. They need to stop cutting down the rainforests to run cattle and the timber companies from taking ancient trees and destroying preserves. The oil companies from destroying and poisoning large areas and refusing to clear up behind themselves (& the US made such a fuss about BP and do nothing to patrol their own abroad) as well as building dams on native sites.

Apart from these tiny little considerations.......
