‘A Billion Acts for Big Cats' on Earth Day

Today is Earth Day – an international day of advocacy and celebration of the magnificence of our Earth, and the equally incredible wildlife it supports. On this day, as the citizens of the world are encouraged to make ‘A Billion Acts of Green,’ Panthera asks that you also pledge to help us make 'A Billion Acts for Big Cats.'

The big cats of this Earth – tigers, lions, jaguars, snow leopards, leopards, cheetahs, and cougars – serve as critical ecosystem guardians for our planet. The presence of these apex predators indicates healthy ecosystems that support thousands of plant and animal species, including people.

When you act for big cats, you act for yourself, and for all animals on the planet.

This Earth Day, pledge to make at least one of the following ‘Acts for Big Cats’:

1. Donate. 100% of your donation goes directly to the field, enabling Panthera’s scientists to carry out the research and conservation initiatives needed to protect the world’s wild cats.

2. Stay Informed. Join Panthera’s email list to get the latest updates about wild cat conservation.

3. ‘Like’ us on Facebook. Also join our other social media communities - Twitter, Vimeo, YouTube, and Flickr.

4. Educate Yourself. Read Panthera’s Report Cards on the State of tigers, lions, jaguars and snow leopards.

5. Educate Others. Email your friends and family about Panthera and post about our work on Facebook & Twitter.

Make this Earth Day Count for Cats.

Do your part.
