Rescue to Release: Three Orphaned Jaguar Cubs

JaguarYou need a weekend break. Give yourself an hour, sit back, relax and watch this fascinating documentary from the BBC and the Jaguar Conservation Fund. Filmed in glorious HD, this footage will satisfy even the most dedicated jaguar fan, and yes, it will make you green with envy.

Biologist Dr. Leandro Silveira and his wife rescued three tiny orphaned jaguar cubs after their mother had been killed by ranchers. Watch the amazing footage as these two dedicated jaguar conservationists raise the young cubs, train them to be self sufficient and release them back into the wild.

    This couple of scientists does a fantastic and primordial job but livestock farming shrinks little by little the Brazilain rainforest and ranchers shoot the rare jaguars to protect their cows. It”s up to you northern Americans and Europeans not to import the meat coming from this slow ecocide; Not only supplying our supermarkets with this kind of meat needs polluting traffic such as aircraft , trains and lorries but it contributes to destroy the rainforest. It’s up to you not to accpet this destruction and not to elect politicians who run harmless international trade agreements.
