International Jaguar Day
Recognizing the jaguar, the largest big cat species in the Americas, International Jaguar Day is an occasion to raise awareness of the increasing threats these animals face, such as habitat loss, illegal hunting, and conflict with humans. The day encourages support for conservation efforts that aim to protect and restore the jaguar’s habitat, mitigate human-jaguar conflicts, and clamp down on illegal wildlife trade. Activities on this day can encompass educational webinars about the biology and behavior of jaguars, art competitions to engage younger audiences, fundraising events supporting jaguar research and conservation projects, and social media campaigns highlighting the jaguar’s cultural significance and its role as an umbrella species in maintaining biodiversity.
