Guyana is working with an international partner to protect one of its most prized animals…the jaguar.According to the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment, it is signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Panthera Corporation (Panthera), aimed at conserving Guyana’s national animal, the Jaguar.Guyana is the latest country to partner with Panthera on a regional effort to conserve the species, and facilitate genetic flow between important Jaguar habitats.Protection of Guyana’s jaguars will significantly improve under the imminent arrangement“The MOU provides a framework for research and surveys on the Jaguar, public education on the behaviours of these large cats, Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic, and the examination of economic opportunities associated with Jaguar conservation, ” the Ministry said yesterday.Under the MOU, Panthera will be providing technical and scientific expertise on conservation priorities, Jaguar movement models and other resources aimed at facilitating long term benefits to local stakeholders, and the country as a whole.“The MOU will also provide a solid foundation for new initiatives to understand and mitigate conflicts between humans and jaguars. These initiatives may include grants for local researchers and research institutions and the development of a conflict response mechanism to deal with problem animals.”Panthera, which is the world’s leading wildcat conservation group, is currently spearheading the International Jaguar Corridor Initiative – an ambitious plan to conserve jaguars and work with both protected and non-protected areas to ensure that people and wildlife can co-exist. With the signing of the MOU, Guyana will now be in a better position to benefit from this regional project.The Ministry said it has identified the newly created Protected Areas Commission (PAC) as the focal agency for this important initiative. The PAC will shortly be moving the MOU forward with the development of sub-agreements and project documents for on-the-ground implementation. Much of the initial work under the MOU will focus on research, education, and identifying opportunities for Jaguar conservation and related tourism initiatives.The jaguar, which Guyanese locals call the big cat ‘tiger’, which outside of its girth (after the lion and tiger, the jaguar (Panthera onca) is the third-largest feline in the world, and the largest in the Western Hemisphere), and can be identified by its tawny yellow coat and beautiful markings of black spots, or rosettes, forming broken circles around a small central spot.The only Panthera species found in the Americas, jaguars can also be differentiated from other big cats in the region by their large head, short, stocky legs, and sturdy body.Jaguars are built more for stealth and sudden capture than long-distance running.They are considered uncommon throughout their entire range. They are listed as CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) Appendix I (threatened with extinction), and on the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List, the jaguar is Near Threatened.In Guyana, the solitary creatures are often spotted along trails or gaps along the forest edge where roads or rivers run. Sightings are most common in the Iwokrama Forest, especially along the main roadway.

Contrary to misrepresentation, the Government of Guyana has approved a third loan to the Iwokrama International Centre for Rainforest Conservation and Development as part of continued financial support to the Centre over the years.The most recent being a loan of US$100, 000.00 from the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) to Iwokrama International Centre for Rainforest Conservation and DevelopmentThis is a result of the Government’s commitment to the work being undertaken and pursued by Iwokrama International Centre for Rainforest Conservation and Development, which is a unique reserve of 371, 000 hectares of rainforest.The Centre was established in 1995 with the aim of providing a dedicated site to test the concept of a truly sustainable forest – where conservation, environmental balance and economic use can be mutually reinforcing.Its mandate to “promote the conservation and the sustainable and equitable use of tropical rainforests in a manner that will lead to lasting ecological, economic and social benefits to the people of Guyana and to the world in general” is aligned with the Low Carbon and Green Economy pathway that the Government has embarked on and remains committed to. Iwokrama continues to be a vital research Centre and focal point for Climate Change, Sustainable Forestry and Eco-Tourism.The recent approval by the Government for the transfer of the sum of US$100, 000.00 from the GGMC to Iwokrama, is as a result of the Centre’s inability to raise finances on the international arena and the unforeseen hurdles encountered with partnerships such as the Iwokrama/Tigerwood Guyana Inc. partnership. This partnership was expected to provide much needed revenue from the sustainable harvesting of forests and be a model for sustainable forestry development.In light of the ongoing work of Iwokrama and the need to maintain and promote the respective activities in both the Sustainable Use Area (SUA) and the Wilderness Preserve (WP), the Government has again committed funds to ensuring that the critical work continues and progresses. The financial injection of US$100, 000.00 represents Government’s continued support to Iwokrama, which it has demonstrated over the years by approving the financial support of US$450, 000.00 by GGMC in 2013 and US$600, 000.00 by the Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC).The financial support by GGMC to Iwokrama is similar to other such support provided over the last three years by the Commission to entities such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Nick Castellanos Tigers Jersey, National Protected Areas Trust Fund (NPATF), and the Ministry of Public Works, which would have been recipients of such financial assistance.Notwithstanding the support provided by the Government through its agencies, it is expected that the importance and relevance of Iwokrama would not be lost on the international community and as such financial support can be committed to the Centre given that the benefits to be derived from forest services are not limited to Guyana. In addition, the need for the Centre to be financially sustainable and to have projects undertaken in this regard is of paramount importance. (GINA)
