ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An environmental advocacy group has proposed that federal officials set aside millions of acres in Arizona and New Mexico to aid efforts to save endangered jaguars.

Michael Robinson of the Center for Biological Diversity recently told the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that the endangered cats need more than the 1,300 square miles the agency proposed in August.
