Thank you for your ongoing support of the Global Big Cat Alliance. Given the times we are facing, since much of our work involves direct contact with our partners and community outreach and since essentially the whole globe has been on some form of lock down, some of our work and the work of our partners has been halted or slowed due to the pandemic. And unfortunately, the impact of this virus is reaching more than just humans.
A few weeks ago, we received word from one of our Jaguar partners that a conservation facility in Mexico – an organization devoted to rehabbing and releasing Jaguars back into their natural habitat – was suffering to the point where they were unable to feed or provide medical care for the jaguars in their care. Their primary source of revenue is through income generated from visits to the organization. With the shut down and shelter in place orders across the globe, this conservation facility in Oaxaca had to do the same, meaning no income was being generated throughout the past six or more weeks.
We were able through your support to provide emergency support to the organization to provide much needed food and medical support for the next month. Their hope is that they can reopen their doors soon and generate income to feed and keep these beautiful animals safe.
We share with you some videos of them providing medical support to the jaguars in their care as well as two of the jaguars being reunited.
Thank you for your ongoing support of this work. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well, and that balance be restored to the earth.
