About Us

In Belize we are fortunate to have all 5 species of wild cats, Mountain Lion, Jaguar, Ocelot, Jaguarundi and Margay on our property, of which the Jaguar is the most endangered. 

To counter the Deforestation was the motivation for launching the charity “Jaguar Habitat”.  The Jaguar is the perfect Keystone Species.


The Jaguar (Panthera onca) is a large cat measuring up to 6 feet in length and weighing up to 348lbs. The Jaguar is the 3rd largest cat in the world. We are very luck to have a viable population of these cats in our care. The IUCN classify the Jaguar as Near Threatened.


The Jaguarundi (Puma yagouaroundi) is a small slender cat native to Central and South America. They are approximately 3-4 feet in length, weighing about 15lbs. They are capable of running at speeds of up to 60mph. We have significant numbers under our protection. Their numbers are declining due to habitat loss, hunting and poisoning.


The Ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) is a medium sized spotted / stripy cat up to 20 inches in length and weighing up to 30lbs. We have a large population of these beautiful cats in our concervation area.

Mountain Lion

The Mountain Lion (Puma concolor) also known as a cougar ranges from North America right down to Patagonia. Adult Mountain Lion can be as tall as 3 feet and weigh as much as 220lbs. They hunt at night often lying in wait for prey before pouncing from behind. We regularly capture them in our game cameras.


The Margay (Leopardus wiedii) weighing in at about 8lbs and reaching lengths of 48inches, these cats are the size of small domestic cats. They have characteristic large eyes and magnificent spots. Like all 5 of our native wild cats, the Margay numbers are in decline for the same reasons of habitat destruction, hunting and poisoning.
