WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to save one of our planet's endangered big cats, the jaguar, Florida Crystals has launched a one-of-a-kind e-coupon program in collaboration with the Palm Beach Zoo, whose jaguar breeding program is among the most successful in the nation.

Jaguars are the western hemisphere's largest and most powerful felines. Florida Crystals chose the Palm Beach Zoo, because it plays an amazing role in jaguar conservation through its participation in the Association of Zoos & Aquariums Species Survival Plan. Amazingly, twenty percent of the nation's captive jaguars in the program can trace their bloodlines back to the Palm Beach Zoo's jaguar family.

For every coupon redeemed from www.floridacrystalscoupon.com on any variety of Florida Crystals(R) Natural and Organic sugar, the company will donate an amount chosen by its customers to the Jaguar Conservation Fund at the Palm Beach Zoo. The new program offers the opportunity to directly benefit an endangered animal.

"This initiative highlights one of Florida Crystals' on-going sustainable efforts," said Luis Fernandez, Executive Vice President of Florida Crystals Corporation. "We've supported and worked with wildlife researchers on our Florida farms over the years. We are enthusiastic about now offering our customers the ability to join us in wildlife conservation."
