Jaguar by Borislav Stefanov

Jaguars are strong swimmers and climbers and need large areas of tropical rainforests and shorelines to survive. The hunting and habitat loss through deforestation continues to threaten the survival of these wonderful cats. The WWF has worked with the Brazilian government to successfully protect large blocks of the Amazon forest for the Jaguar. In Peru, the WWF continues to pursue jaguars to learn more about their habitat requirements.
