Hear ye, Hear ye…Calling cyclists and supporters for the upcoming Jaguar Bike-A-Thon in Arizona.
We will be going the “extra mile” for the jaguar – pedaling a route of over 300 miles from the Arizona-Mexico border to Phoenix, Arizona, to demonstrate our strong support for bringing back the jaguar as a native species of the American Southwest.
We invite you to join us for all or part of this important event, or pledge your support and assistance (see check off below).
When: Spring 2010. Exact dates to be decided. Please fill out our Jaguar BAT Questionnaire .
Itinerary (Subject to change/modification): The US-Mexico Border at Sasabe; Arivaca; Coronado National Forest; Nogales area; Patagonia-Sonoita, Saguaro National Park; Tucson; Oracle; Superior; Phoenix. We will make short stops in or near areas of important jaguar habitat, places where jaguars were know to have occurred, and locations where there are threats to jaguar habitat.
Objectives: Our purpose is to build public awareness and support for recovery of the endangered jaguar in the American Southwest. We will talk to people along our route and carry conservation messages from them along with proposals to restore the jaguar. We’ll present these to federal and state officials and elected leaders in Phoenix.
