New reports are pointing to profit-hungry tiger breeders and farms as the forces responsible for continuing to pressure China to legalize the trade in tiger and rhino parts. Read Panthera's new statement urging China to withstand pressure from tiger breeders and poaching syndicates and prioritize the survival of our planet's endangered species.
Together, We Did It!
Thanks to our generous band of supporters, we are excited to share that we have surpassed our 2018 end of year fundraising goal: raising over a million dollars for cat conservation! THANK YOU, from all of us at Panthera, to everyone who supported the future of wild cats this giving season.
As the New Year begins, we invite you to take a look at some of the successes we achieved together in 2018, from an impressive increase in Nepal's tiger population to a dramatic reduction in lion snaring incidents in Kafue, Zambia.

Panthera is the only organization in the world devoted exclusively to the conservation of the world’s wild cats. Our team of leading biologists and law enforcement experts develop innovative strategies to address the dire threats facing cheetahs, jaguars, leopards, lions, pumas, snow leopards, and tigers.
We are on the front lines, fighting to stop poaching, prevent conflict with people, conserve wild cat habitats, and reduce unsustainable legal hunting. These proven strategies don't just protect wild cats—they also protect their vast landscapes and the endless variety of life within them. These wild places are crucial to our planet’s health—and our own.
