Why do I want to hike AND protect the AZT so badly? THIS!! There is ONE known jaguar in the United States and it uses the AZT, but there's a Canadian company that wants to destroy its habitat and the trail to create an open-pit copper mine that would produce toxic chemicals and completely devastate the entire area. This is why the Arizona Trail Association needs good photos! Help me get them! http://igg.me/at/protect-the-azt

Hopefully it doesn't take much of an effort to save the last jaguar in the U.S. from a toxic company.
