Thank you for your ongoing support of the Global Big Cat Alliance. As we reported in previous updates, much of our 2020 funding shifted from direct project support to emergency support for our partners around the globe – either to big cat conservation organizations with whom we partner or to indigenous cultural practitioners (ICPs) in our network who support these sacred big cats. This trajectory has continued into early 2021.
In 2020 we provided support for some of our Snow Leopard (educational programs for children) and Jaguar partners, including a Jaguar conservation facility in Oaxaca, Mexico, which directly works with rehabilitating injured jaguars. This last quarter, we learned that one of our ICPs who works with and supports various conservation facilities throughout Mexico, including Xaguar Xoo, has landed on challenging times himself due to the pandemic.
Through your generous support, we have been able to provide some support to this ICP for him and his amazing work, which ultimately serves the jaguars of his homelands (he is a Mixteca artist, musician and jaguar shaman). We will also continue to support Xaguar Xoo in whatever ways we can (see report from May 2020) in the months ahead.
Thank you for your support and for spreading the word about the Global Alliance for Big Cat Conservation project. We wish you and your loved ones a healthy, happy and safe New Year and extend our hopes and wishes for renewed life and balance on Earth.
