Southwestern Regional Director Benjamin Tuggle presented Warner Glenn with the Region's Recovery Champion Award and the first Regional Director's Conservation Award at a meeting of the Malpai Borderlands Group.  Warner Glenn received the award for his outstanding contributions and leadership in the conservation of the Jaguar in Southern Arizona and New Mexico.  Warner Glenn, through his photographs of his two encounters with Jaguars in the borderlands and his book, Eyes of Fire, detailing his first encounter in 1996, has been instrumental in changing attitudes towards this unique predator among southern Arizona ranchers and communities.  The profits from his book were used to set up a fund to compensate livestock owners for confirmed jaguar depredations.
