Panthera believes corporations have a vital role to play in wildlife conservation. They fund conservation programming and implement business practices that can benefit wild cats, their habitats and travelling corridors and the people who live among them. Panthera’s corporate partners support our work through annual donations and gifts as well as royalty programs. In addition Panthera may also advise corporations on wildlife-friendly business and development best practices.
Corporate philanthropy is everyone’s responsibility. Interested in becoming a philanthropic giving partner? Email us at email@example.com.
In 2015, Cartier, the world-renowned luxury maison, and Peace Parks Foundation joined forces with Panthera’s Furs for Life program to conserve the world’s most persecuted big cat: the leopard. In southern Africa, local communities covet leopard skins and wear them during community celebrations. To reduce the hunting of leopards and other wild cats for their pelts, Panthera created a high-quality replica leopard fur to be worn in place of real fur at community gatherings. Since 2016, Furs for Life donated more than 18,500 synthetic leopard fur capes to the Shembe community in South Africa, decreasing the use of real leopard furs at religious gatherings by half and preventing hundreds of leopard deaths annually.
In partnership with the Lozi people of Zambia, Furs for Life initiated the Saving Spots project in August 2019. This project involved the creation of synthetic fur garments known as Heritage Furs to replace real leopard, serval and lion furs used during Lozi festivals. Panthera expects that Heritage Furs will help to reduce the hunting of wild cats across southern Africa where species are severely threatened.

Hermès was founded in 1837 as a maker of harnesses and saddles. Six generations of enterprising artisans have opened up new domains and conquered new markets imbued with respect for the past and enthusiasm for the future.
Hermès and Panthera have joined forces to create a living legacy to Robert Dallet, the late French artist and naturalist whose lifelike paintings of wild cats for the Parisian maker of quality goods have captivated a generation of Hermès clientele. In honor of Panthera’s tenth anniversary, the Robert Dallet Initiative for Wild Cat Conservation will help to fund Panthera’s leading research and on-the-ground efforts to protect wild cats and their landscapes around the world.
Panthera’s business members help to advance critical research, implement scientifically measured conservation programs and build on-the-ground and international partnerships that work to ensure a long-term future for the world’s wild cats.
