Very exciting project! ...

The Center for Biological Diversity released new video today of a wild jaguar in the United States. The footage, captured by a remote-sensor camera in the Chiricahua Mountains in Arizona, offers a stunning glimpse of the jaguar recently named “Sombra” by students at Paulo Freire Freedom School - University Campus in Tucson. The rosette spot patterns on the cat suggest this is the same individual photographed by the Bureau of Land Management in the Dos Cabezas Mountains in November 2016. According to the Arizona Game and Fish Department the jaguar in the photo is a male. The footage contains audio. This footage is available for media use by request by emailing CenterVideos@BiologicalDiversity.org Additional footage from the same remote camera also shows bears, a mountain lion, deer and a coati sharing the same habitat with Sombra. Since 2015, three wild jaguars have been spotted in Arizona: El Jefe, Yo'oko and Sombra. Since 1996 wild jaguars have appeared in nine different mountain ranges in Arizona and two mountain ranges in New Mexico. In March 2014 — as a result of legal action by the Center for Biological Diversity — jaguars received 764,207 acres of critical habitat in Arizona and New Mexico. Jaguars have always roamed the U.S. Southwest but were nearly driven to extinction in the 20th century. One of the greatest single threats to jaguar recovery in the United States is the proposed expansion of the U.S.-Mexico border wall, which would destroy the big cats' ancient migration paths.
