Habitat Corridors

The Jaguar Habitat Campaign helped friends at the Western Environmental Law Center, the Sky Island Alliance, and The Wildlands Project on a proposal to protect a major habitat corridor for jaguar and other wildlife in Arizona and New Mexico. It’s called the Gila-Yaqui Corridor, named after the rivers that border it to the north and south.  Read the proposal and corridor map. This area, much of it still wild, must be protected against reckless development that destroys vital habitat for the jaguar and other wildlife. Unfortunately, the Arizona Game and Fish Department decided against sending the proposal to the federal government for funding. What in the world is their problem? In any case, it won’t deter our groups from working in other ways to protect this wonderful landscape!
