Here are a mom and cubs along the bank of a river after they just swam across it. Not too long ago an image with mom and cubs was impossible to see. Mom is cleaning her cubs, This is so similar in many ways to us as humans! Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families. If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, we need to treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not.

My @natgeo jaguar story came out this week - in the December issue of National Geographic Magazine! and LOOK for our @NatGeowild Big Cat Week show which premiers on Dec 10th @ 9PM, filmed with the amazing @bertiegregory.

Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for people who think they receive the “power of the jaguar through their teeth”, Chinese Traditional Medicine and now Luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid @bertiegregory

My first story with big cats was the 1st @natgeo Jaguar story 20 years ago! It has changed my life working with the magical and magnificent cats of the world. Animals have emotions just like we have.

This is not an image you “LIKE” but needs to be shown and is published in Nat Geo Mag this month. Poaching of jaguars is rampant again like is was back in the 60’s and 70’s. It needs to be stopped and showing images like this is one way to make that happen - get it out in the press and hopefully Governments will be forced by their citizens to act. Stay tuned in the next few weeks for more like this, unfortunately.

In a community outside of Iquitos, Peru local indigenous people sell the skins of jaguars that they have killed.
One village chief told us he hunts jaguar all year long as in October someone from a “Chinese corporation” comes to buy the 4 canines from each jaguar. The skins do not sell for very much as the buyer does not want them and they are illegal to export for tourists, as are the teeth and any other part of the jaguar.

I love seeing Pirata flying through the air in one of his spectacular failures - trying to get food from his supermarket - the Pantanal. 
Jaguars have a tough life trying to find food in their watery restaurant - they may want caiman for dinner but it may take them days and many spectacular failures before they are successful.  Nature is perfection. It gives us the air we breathe and the water we all need for our life.

stevewinterphoto | Steve Winter | Today is International Snow Leopard Day!!@stevewinterphoto @natgeo
Snow leopards are the ghosts of the high mountain areas of central Asia in which they live.
The areas in which SL’s live are vitally important as they provide water for 100’s of millions of people.
But the glaciers that provide the water are rapidly disappearing, which begs the question - what will the future bring for people and animals?

Local people need to benefit from living with predators - snow leopards are persecuted by revenge killings - when they kill someone’s livestock a herder will then kill them. There are great community conservation projects where local herders can protect their flocks, making more money and saving snow leopards at the same time! Turning and economic negative into an economic positive - and saving snow leopards at the same time!

The crew from Four Paws grinds off the wheels of a cage with a rescued bear in it so it will fit on the plane flying from Istanbul to Amman, Jordan.

I wanted to share a powerful tale of hope, published today.

A feature story written by Sharon Guynup and multimedia piece co-produced with Sharon and filmed by me, it follows the daring, dangerous rescue of 13 animals from a bombed-out zoo just outside Aleppo—the last of the 300 animals that were housed there when the Syrian civil war broke out six years ago. Rescued by Four Paws International from Vienna Austria - FourPaws.org

Dodging bombs and bullets, dozens and dozens of people helped rescue the last survivors from an abandoned zoo in Aleppo. 13 saved - 300 animals killed or sold.

Today is World Rhino Day!! Rhinos are being massacred for their horns. Last year 1054 rhinos were killed in South Africa alone.  Rhino horn has been found to have no medicinal value. It is made of keratin, the same tissue as our hair or nails - so chew your fingernails - and SAVE THE RHINO!
