Jaguars in Virtual Reality
‘Living with Jaguars,’ Panthera's first virtual reality film produced by VICE’s Motherboard, has just been released! See the brilliant biodiversity of the Brazilian Pantanal as never before - through the eyes of the jaguar, Panthera’s scientists, ranchers and others - and learn how Panthera is working to create a world in which cats, cattle and cattlemen can co-exist.
Welcome to the world of the jaguar
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.
The world's big cats--critical members of their ecosystems--are up against some serious threats. But the support of wildlife advocates like you fuels the conservation work that's turning the tide for these majestic animals around the globe. Please help us meet our $48,000 challenge to mark the 48th Earth Day by midnight on April 22.
