Sustentare / ONÇAFARI

In its second grant to the organziation, the Holtzman Wildlife Foundation has provided a grant to Sustentare and its Brazilian partner ONÇAFARI to support the re-wilding of a Jaguar cub that lost its mother to a forest fire.

Working with the local university, ONÇAFARI has offered to re-wild the two-month-old cub that would have otherwise gone to a zoo. Having lost its mother, the cub would not have learned how to hunt and survive. ONÇAFARI has a proven program to re-wild Jaguars, and it will embark on a two-year program to prepare the cub for release in the rainforest.
