why is the jaguar endangered
Why is the Jaguar Endangered?
  • Humans are the main threat to the jaguar.
  • Humans hunt the jaguar for sport, and for its spotted hide.
  • During the sixties and seventies, around 18,000 jaguars were killed every year for their beautiful coat.
  • The number of jaguars has declined over the last 100 years mainly because humans have cut down many of their rainforests in Central and South America. The forests and grasslands are being cleared. The destruction of the jaguar's habitat (rainforest) is causing decrease in the Jaguar population.
