Take Action for Jaguars and Our Climate

As their habitat is being destroyed, forest-dwelling species like jaguars in the Amazon are struggling to survive in the forestland that is left. Forests in the Brazilian Amazon are being cleared and burned to make way for agricultural expansion at an alarming rate—recent government reports show more than 5,000 square miles of forest were lost in one year alone!

The destruction and burning of old-growth trees in the Amazon releases significant amounts of climate-warming carbon dioxide. Scientists say that sharply reducing this deforestation is important for our climate—as destruction of tropical rainforests weakens the planet’s ability to capture and store greenhouse gasses, and is responsible for about 9% of human-caused CO2 emissions.

Urge Congress to support the FOREST Act to stop deforestation, combat climate change and save wildlife.
