- Jaguars are classed as a near threatened species.
- They are affected by habitat loss and fragmentation, human wildlife conflict and illegal wildlife trade.
- Jaguars now occupy less than half of the territory that they once did.
- Jaguars live mainly in the basin of the amazon rainforest and in the nearby Pantanal wetlands.
- Jaguars are the top predators in their habitat, and they play an important role in controlling the populations of other species.
