How I relate to the BJF

“The Amazon rainforest serves as the gills for the Western hemisphere.” Realizing that the Amazon is declining every year by the size of Manhattan made Dr. Johnson aware of the importance of supporting the Black Jaguar Foundation. “I am proud to be the first New Yorker who is a Supporting Friend of the BJF and hopefully many more will follow.”
