THe ICFC has set up a web page on the Artists that have been featured on the cover of their annual report. The jaguar I watched in the Brazil Pantanal was one of the featured paintings. This is a hightly rated group to donate to for conservation all over the world.

Often I designate the land fund as without the habitat nothing can survive.
