Transcript of Why are Jaguars endangered?

Since 1900 64 Jaguars have been killed in Arizona. Pollution are killing jaguars because the smoke/smog can burn the grass which destroys their habitat. The population of Jaguars have not increased for 50 years. A couple years ago Jaguars killed seven dogs so now people see Jaguars as a large threat. Jaguars have been hunted to extinction in the U.S.
Basic Facts
Jaguars favorite place to live is in the tropical rainforest, but also can be found in swampy savannas and wet lowlands. Jaguars like soft ground and their den is made of: rotten leaves and other soft materials. Jaguars prefer to live alone.
Jaguars live in Southwest U.S.A., Central America and South America.
Where do Jaguars live?
Some people just kill the Jaguars just for their fur/skin, to sell. Some people don't even know they are killing Jaguars because they think they are just clearing land but really they are destroying the Jaguars habitat.
Why are humans doing this?

People are cutting down trees in the Amazon to make money off the wood but really it is killing the Jaguars homes. Jaguars are known to kill cattle so if a farmer sees a Jaguar they usually kill them. Humans are using slash and burn to clear land which is killing the Jaguars and their habitats. The pollution from buildings can burn the grass or kill the Jaguars. There are now only 15,000 wild Jaguars left!
