Wild cats need three things to survive and thrive: safe space, plentiful prey and connection to other cats. Each day, wild cats face the dire threats of poaching, the illegal wildlife trade, human-cat conflict and habitat loss. Across the world, Panthera, our partners and our supporters are giving critically threatened cat populations a new chance at life. To ensure a future filled with wild cats, we invite you to join our movement to prioritize and protect wild cats.
With focus, dedication and a commitment to our core values, we:
- Protect wild cats, their prey and their habitats with anti-poaching patrols and advanced remote monitoring technology such as PoacherCams;
Combat the illegal wildlife trade by reducing the demand for wildlife products and supporting government efforts to disrupt their preparation, transportation and sale;
Help people live peacefully alongside wild cats by providing sustainable livelihoods and safeguarding their livestock from carnivore attacks; and
Ensure wild cats can roam freely by protecting habitat and critical movement/dispersal corridors and building wildlife-friendly infrastructure.
All of our programs are guided by rigorous monitoring of wild cats, their prey and threats to their survival to ensure we are accomplishing our mission of saving wild cats.
