Jaguar’s DNA may hold future for species

Tango, a 11-year-old male jaguar at the Buenos Aires Zoo, may be the key to the species’ survival. This week, zoo veterinarians collected blood, hair and semen samples from Tango to store as part of ongoing efforts to save the species, which has been hunted nearly to extinction. “The more we do to bring together all the conservation work for this species, the more we can achieve,” said Adrian Sestelo, director of the zoo’s Biotechnology Reproduction Lab.
