”Jaguar Jamboree” held at Jane Hamilton Fine Art Gallery raised  several thousand dollars for the Northern Jaguar Project.

This non- profit group has created an animal preserve in northern Mexico where the beautiful creatures run free. Hundreds of people came to learn more about the endangered species, and donate monies toward their future livelihood.

A highlight of the event was the drawing of the winning raffle ticket for a stunning jaguar painting by Barry Sapp.

Sapp’s “Tigres del Desierto” was based on video footage from the Northern Jaguar Reserve of two romantically inclined jaguars walking together through an arroyo.
