The territory of the Sky Island region is disappearing at an alarming rate. While some tracts of land are bring preserved, for animals like the jaguar, connected and continuous wildlife corridors are key. These big cats need room to roam in order to find water, food, and shelter so long-term, healthy populations can thrive.
The need for research is imperative. Field expeditions into little-studied, remote areas help identify and document important information about the jaguar, ensuring their habitat is secured for generations to come.
