Panthera’s Director of Media and National Geographic photographer, Steve Winter, spent a decade in search of wild tigers, devoted to capturing their magnificence and telling their story, and hoping to reinvigorate global concern as their numbers continued to dwindle. In 2007, freelance environmental journalist Sharon Guynup was working on a story about poaching in India's Kaziranga National Park--when she glimpsed her first wild tiger and began writing regularly about big cats. Now, their photographs and stories can be seen in the newly published Panthera-National Geographic book, entitled ‘Tigers Forever: Saving the World’s Most Endangered Big Cat.’

17Oct The Explorers’ Club Dinner and Presentation with Panthera President Dr. Luke HunterThursday, October 17, 2013 - 6:00pm Thursday, October 17, 2013 - 9:00pmThe Explorers Club, NY, NY

The leopard is the quintessential cat: stealthy, secretive and adaptable. It is able to exist in virtually all habitats from hyper-arid desert massifs in the Sahara to the dense equatorial forests of central Africa - the only African cat that occurs in both. The leopard eats prey ranging from dung beetles to wildebeest, and survives on domestic dogs near major cities; it can drink water from thermal springs and traverse Kilimanjaro’s snowline. However, all this adaptability comes at a price - the leopard occupies a conservation blind-spot, and is rarely thought of as threatened or needing conservation action. But the species has lost over 35% of its historic range in Africa and far more again throughout Asia.
