From AudioFile:

Adventure, "lost" lands, contemporary issues, multigenerational families, endangered animals and intrigue-JAGUAR has them all! Jake Lansa tells of his visit to his father's biology project site in Brazil-and how it turns into a quest to establish a wildlife preserve. As the Lansa project moves from staging area to the deepest reaches of the rain forest, Johnny Heller conveys both the intensity of a teenager thrilled with the unexpected responsibility of flying the project's ultralight and the frustration of a boy whose father devotes more attention to his work than his son. Each of the extensive cast of supporting characters is differentiated clearly. Heller presents them all as individuals passionately dedicated to the jaguar project. A.R.
