In an unprecedented global commitment to save the jaguar, international conservation organizations (WCS, Panthera, WWF and UNDP) and 14 jaguar range states joined forces in late 2018 to launch The Jaguar 2030 Conservation Roadmap for the Americas. Presented at the Conference of Parties (COP) of the Convention on Biological Diversity in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, this Roadmap seeks to strengthen the Jaguar Corridor, which extends from Mexico to Argentina, by securing 30 priority conservation landscapes for jaguars by the year 2030. As a bold and regionally focused initiative, this will pave a new path to strengthen international cooperation and awareness of jaguar protection initiatives and stimulate sustainable development opportunities.
