“Many thanks 4 animals saved this year-AZ. jaguar& beluga”

So many activist to be thankful for this season!

Remember the AZ. jaguar, Macho B that was tragically killed three years ago? No jaguars have been since -until this past weekend a jaguar has been spotted in the American when a 200-pound healthy animal was photographed in southern Arizona by a hunter after being treed by his dogs. Thankfully, all parted ways without injury or a shot being fired.

The Center for Biological Diversity’s legal work earned the jaguar a place on the endangered species list in 1997, but it wasn’t until last year — after more Center advocacy and nearly 20,000 emails from Center supporters — that the Obama administration pledged to protect “critical habitat” and draft a recovery plan for the species. With protected habitat, the jaguar should be able to roam safely in the Southwest again.

Thanks to the Center’s members and advocates with the co-operation of the Obama administration for the jaguar wins.and the protection for the Miami blue butterfly and many others like the beluga whale.
