Good news! The Jaguar and Asian Elephant are getting more international protection.
Following a summit in India, these two animals have been added to the Convention on Migratory Species.
The aim of this agreement is to enable animals to move along corridors between countries, to avoid isolation and extinction.
The jaguar has lost 40% of its habitat in the last 100 years. More funding will be allocated to fight deforestation, trafficking, poaching, poisoning.
India is home to 60% of Asian elephants and shares borders with Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and Nepal.
Asian elephants are a highly migrating specie and by working together, these countries will help them move along borders without risk.
