国际美洲豹日快乐!(美國美中報道)

国际美洲豹日快乐(11月29日)!美洲豹常见于美洲野外。回顾历史,美洲豹的足迹最北到过蒙特利湾,现在它们主要生活在中美洲和南美洲。它们的栖息地受到森林砍伐和开发的威胁。现存的野生美洲豹只有64000只,这是一个濒临灭绝的物种。栖息地的丧失、入侵和偷猎是美洲豹生存的最大威胁。

美国通过《濒危野生动植物种国际贸易公约》来帮助保护美洲豹,该公约由183个缔约方签署,以确保国际动植物标本贸易不会威胁到它们在野外的生存。详情请见: https://cites.org/eng

Happy #International Jaguar Day (November 29)! Jaguars are found in the wild in the Americas. Historically, jaguars ranged as far north as Monterey Bay and today live primarily in Central and South America. Their habitat is threatened by deforestation and development. With only 64,000 jaguars alive in the wild today, jaguars are a species threatened with extinction. Habitat loss, encroachment, and poaching are the greatest threats to jaguar survival.

The United States helps protect jaguars through the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), an agreement among 183 parties to ensure that international trade in animal and plant specimens does not threaten their survival in the wild.
