Panthera has brought together the world’s leading wild cat experts to direct and implement effective conservation strategies for the world’s largest and most endangered cats: tigers, lions, jaguars and snow leopards. Their approach to wild cat conservation is rooted in science and based upon decades of first hand field experience.

Panthera seeks a future in which the world’s 37 wild cat species have the necessary and ongoing protection from human and environmental threats to persist and thrive in the wild. Their vision sees endangered wild cat populations rebounded, critical habitats and core populations connected by genetic and biological corridors, and a global commitment to protect these iconic species through near and distant futures.

Why Protect Wild Cats?
Some of the greatest species to ever roam the planet are threatened with extinction.
Panthera focuses on saving wild cat species across the globe because this is a winning strategy for conserving large, functioning ecosystems on which they depend, and  contain thousands of species of plants and animals. Cats act as landscape guardians and their presence indicates healthy, intact ecosystems that are crucial for all life, including people.  While Panthera’s efforts are focused on saving wild cats, the impacts go far beyond.

You Can Make a Difference
Panthera is dedicated to ensuring a future for the wild cats of the world. With their team of experts, they conduct the best possible science, and convert scientific data into effective and relevant conservation action. But they cannot do this alone, and rely on people like you who share in their vision. When you give to Panthera, 100% of your donation goes directly to the field, where it matters most.
