Only 15,000. That’s how few jaguars remain in the wild. Their last refuge is in the Amazon basin –yet even there they are far from safe. In an effort to protect these beautiful animals, Amazon Rainforest Conservancy is creating a jaguar corridor between the two mountain ranges of Peru’s Cordillera Escalera Regional Park. The corridor is critical to providing jaguars a safe passage across the valley – passage that is otherwise threatened by ranchers which shoot them on sight out of fear for their cattle.
As of June 2023, we have acquired six parcels of land totalling 78 hectares (193 acres). Your donation will go toward ARC purchasing more land to expand the jaguar corridor.
Together we can ensure our children and grandchildren live in a world where jaguars still live free in the wild.
