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.

President Trump’s Border Wall Will Mean The Extinction Of Jaguars In The United States

Wildlife experts and biologists believe that one-day jaguars could make a return to the United States if the country leaves a trail open for females to follow males that have been spotted in the country. There have been seven confirmed male jaguars spotted in the US since 1996. Five of those males ventured into Southern Arizona and two were seen in South-Western New Mexico. Jaguars have effectively been extinct in both places for decades.

Meet The Man Trying To Save The Jaguar

Ricardo Moreno is a cat loving conservationist who has focused his efforts on protecting South America’s biggest cat, the jaguar. The jaguar used to roam across a territory that spanned nearly nine million square kilometres. Its range extended from the Southern mountains of Argentina all the way up to the Grand Canyon in the United States. Unfortunately, after decades of hunting and habitat destruction, the jaguar’s range has dramatically shrunk and in the process its population has fallen by a whopping 40 per cent.
