As Panthera CEO & renowned jaguar scientist, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, explained, “The signing of this historic agreement epitomizes conservation action & partnerships coming full circle. Nearly 30 years ago, I studied the jaguars of Belize, & today we return to the birthplace of jaguar research & conservation to reignite & strengthen the commitment, strategy & resources required to ensure this species lives on, for the next 30 years, & beyond. This MOU now represents Panthera’s sixth jaguar conservation agreement with a Latin American government, & our team will continue to work, country by country, to build partnerships with all nations home to the jaguar, connecting & protecting the entire 18 nation mosaic that is the jaguar’s range.”
