Adopt a Jaguar

Once found in the United States, the jaguar’s current range extends from Mexico, through Central America and half of South America to northern Argentina. The jaguar is the third-largest feline in the world, after the tiger and the lion, and is the most powerful big cat in the Western Hemisphere. Dense rainforest is the ideal habitat for the jaguar, but they can be found in forest/field habitats when cattle are present, or near rivers and swamps. Jaguars like to stalk and ambush their prey. Encounters with cattle and cattle owners have caused jaguars to earn a poor reputation and have prompted their demise in many areas, despite protections by national and international entities. Jaguars and their habitats are threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation, and in the past, were hunted for their beautiful fur.
