I stand with El Jefe, America's only wild jaguar

Action: Wildlife Conservation

February 19, 2016   Action Alert ID# 339

 

New video has been released showing the only known wild jaguar in the United States in his natural habitat in southern Arizona, where he's been living for more than three years. The stunning video, captured on remote-sensor cameras, has gone viral and gained national attention for this beautiful cat, named El Jefe by Tucson school kids.

But many people aren't aware that El Jefe's home is threatened by a massive open-pit copper mine. The proposed Rosemont Mine would blast a mile-wide hole in the ground thousands of feet deep and bury thousands of acres of public land under 800-foot-high piles of toxic mine waste, right in the middle of El Jefe's home territory.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is expected to issue a formal biological opinion sometime soon regarding the impacts of the mine on endangered species, including jaguars.

Tell the Service it must act to protect El Jefe and his critical habitat.
