SAFE Jaguar is a network of 31 AZA-accredited facilities that work together with international partners to help protect and save species around the world. Learn more about the SAFE Jaguar program.

For nearly 40 years, AZA member institutions have been funding, conducting and supporting jaguar-related fieldwork in Central and South America. SAFE Jaguar uses objectives outlined by the International Union for Conservation of Nature Species Survival Commission Cat Specialist Group. It’s focused on protecting jaguars primarily in Central America and expanding capacity to protect jaguars throughout their range.
