Extremely rare jaguar reappears in Arizona only to be threatened by open pit mine

Per the highly esteemed Center for Biological Diversity:

Arizona’s Santa Rita Mountains are famous for their natural beauty and wildlife, including rare ocelots and jaguars. They rise up from the ancestral land of the Tohono O’odham, who call the range Ce: wi Duag, or “Long Mountain.” But a Canadian mining company wants to blast a mile-wide, open-pit copper mine in the middle of this priceless place. For over a decade, a coalition of organizations and local governments have successfully held off the mine. In this video Austin Nuñez, Chairman of the San Xavier District of the Tohono O’odham Nation, and allies tell a tale of resistance.
