Panama to receive $2M grant for Jaguar. (Nice start….but MUCH MORE needed)


OP ED by: James “JB” Bryson

While I applaud the attention, and literally “anything” that is allocated to this important issue,……is it just me or does $2Million in 2019 to protect the only apex mammal indigenous to the entire country of Panama seem a bit on the “cheap as shit” side of things. PANAMA, as in the NATION, should be taking care of this creature as a matter of national PRIDE. It should not be relegated to the generosity of grants and charities. IMHO


Panama will receive $ 2 million for the implementation of the Conservation of Felines and Species of Dam Project, which was approved by the Board of Directors of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), through public-private partnerships and human conflict management -jaguar in Panama.

With this project, the rehabilitation of critical habitats is sought, increasing the connectivity between the Chagres National Park and the Darién National Park; contribute to the conservation of endangered species such as jaguars.

The GEF also seeks to implement the long-term wildlife corridor; the conservation of biodiversity;incorporate measures to fight against predation in livestock to reduce conflicts of fauna and humans; and solid monitoring systems focused on the jaguar, which contribute to the conservation objectives of the entire region.

OP ED: Steven- To the loyal contributors that seemingly keep sending stuff to “JB” (even during the holidays), I must say your resolve is admirable. In light of the fact that I, even more than he have stated, are not interested in being the new “Bocasleaks“. Already we have done …
