Greetings Rincon Institute supporters!
Rincon Institute NEEDS YOUR HELP to restore native vegetation along Rincon

planting native ones, sowing seeds, and experimenting with Riparian pole
planting from the existing, surrounding vegetation.

"Northern jaguar project" presentation
Presentation by Lisa Haynes, Wildlife Biologist/Research Specialist
Come and learn about this beautiful animal and how Americans and Mexicans
are working together to conserve the endangered
The jaguar is a magnificent large wild cat, usually orange with black
rosette-like spots, which once roamed throughout much of the Southwestern
United States down through Mexico and into South America (a rare form in the
tropics is completely black). Although it has been documented recently along
the US-Mexico border, it is considered rare and endangered in this northern
part of its distribution. The jaguar once existed in the Rincon Mountains
and it is possible that it may be on its way back into its former range.
