Despite New Jaguars in United States, Feds Release Plan to Recover Endangered Jaguars Only in Mexico

Center for Biological Diversity

SILVER CITY, N.M. - Just weeks after the news broke of a new jaguar in the United States, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today released a draft jaguar recovery plan that puts the onus of recovery of northern jaguars entirely on Mexico. The plan’s criteria for recovery and removal of the jaguar from the “endangered” list could be met without any jaguars occupying any of their vast historic range in the United States.
