5 Cat Facts to Read and Share on Earth Day


Wild cat habitat encompasses one-third of the Earth's terrestrial surface. Wild cats are the ultimate landscape guardians whose presence indicates healthy ecosystems crucial for all life, including people.


Today, wild cats are facing a wide range of pervasive threats, from poaching for the illegal wildlife trade, conflict with a growing human population, overhunting of prey species by local people and habitat loss and fragmentation.


Panthera is working to protect all 38 wild cat species that roam our planet. This includes the world's largest and some of the most imperiled big cats - tigers, lions, jaguars, snow leopards, leopards, cougars and cheetahs - and the 31 smaller wild cat species.


Panthera's conservation footprint and accomplishments are unparalleled. Since Panthera was founded in 2006, our scientists have conducted over 200 wild cat conservation projects in more than 70 countries.
