For the past few years as I have sought information on the jags in Arizona and the Southwest, one person has consistently been generous with his time, information and opinions. That person is Emil McCain. Along with Jack Childs, Emil runs the cameras that have proven the existence of jaguars in the US. Emil’s program relies on donations and his funding has become critically low. I urge all concerned lovers of jaguars to visit the Borderlands Jaguar Detection Project site (www.borderjag.org) and donate funds so that this vital work can continue. In addition, be sure to look for Jack’s forthcoming book Ambushed on the Jaguar Trail.
