If you're one of many Tucsonans who caught a mean case of jaguar fever after footage of the rare predator in the Santa Rita mountains was released last week
, you can hang out with like-minded El Jefe fans and learn more about the native cat at an event hosted by the Center for Biological Diversity
On Wednesday, Feb. 10, the organization will be hosting an event at Barrio Brewing Co. (800 E. 16th St.) to shed some light on the country's only known wild jag. The event, which runs from 6 until 9 p.m., will include unreleased photos and video of El Jefe, along with other northern jaguars. Free snacks will be served to pair with Barrio's new thematically-appropriate brew, the Santa Rita Jefeweizen.
The Night of the Jaguar also aims to inform attendees about threats to El Jefe and his habitat, including the proposed Rosemont Mine and existing border security policies.
The event is free to attend, but organizers ask that you RSVP
if you plan on joining.
