In the ongoing fight for survival, many species are in desperate need of help. Among those creatures is the magnificent jaguar—at best, only 15,000 of these big cats remain in the wild. Here at the Los Angeles Zoo, the three jaguars in residence—Johar, Stewie, and Kaloa—are ambassadors for their wild cousins that are threatened by hunting, habitat loss, and population fragmentation. And it is ultimately up to us—humans—to find the solutions that will save all jaguars from the looming threat of extinction.
“I have always been committed to conservation and the preservation of all endangered species. That’s one of the reasons why I support the Zoo.”
By supporting the Zoo, you help protect species both locally and abroad. Docent and donor Lynn Toler has been involved for more than 25 years. “I have always been committed to conservation and the preservation of all endangered species. That’s one of the reasons why I support the Zoo,” she says. With a smile she adds, “And truthfully, Kaloa has always been one of my favorites.”
It is part of the Zoo’s mission to help protect species like the jaguar and to educate people about their struggles in the wild. That’s why, in addition to taking excellent care of the resident trio, the Zoo supports Paso Pacifico, a conservation organization that works to mitigate threats to wild jaguars and educate local people about a sustainable future for these big cats.
