Honduras, in the heart of the Mesoamerican CORRIDOR OF THE JAGUAR

The Jaguar

It’s a shadow, a ghost, concealed by the very dense foliage of the Mesoamerican forest. Adored, venerated and respected by The Mayas, the jaguar is South and Latin America’s biggest terrestrial predator. It also has the most powerful jaw of all felines. Its distribution area is originally situated between north Mexico, even the extreme south of the United States, to the south of Argentina.

In front of the massive deforestation and the destruction of its habitat, its distribution on the American continent is slowly shrinking. Numerous actions of preservation are taken on the spot, in Central America particularly, where local and international associations, governments and communities work in concert to ensure the maintenance of an essential ecological corridor for the species.
