Jaguar Corridor Initiative
Panthera’s Jaguar Corridor Initiative is the only conservation program that seeks to protect jaguars across their entire six million km2 range. In partnership with governments, corporations, and local communities, Panthera’s Jaguar Corridor Initiative is working to preserve the genetic integrity of the jaguar by connecting and protecting core jaguar populations in human landscapes from northern Mexico to Argentina.
This is built on a multi-dimensional process. Country by country, Panthera’s scientists begin by mapping the jaguar’s presence and the corridors through which they live and move. A corridor might include a cattle ranch, a canal development, a citrus plantation, or someone’s backyard. Using these data, Panthera partners with governments and corporations to support land developments that are both economically profitable and ecologically sustainable, allowing safe passage for jaguars and other wildlife.
