Spotlight on the Ocelot
The ocelot is one of the largest small wild cats found in the Americas. They are recognized by their stocky build and soft, beautiful fur coats. Ocelot populations are decreasing due to habitat loss and fragmentation, as well as persecution related to conflict with humans and small livestock predation.
We're studying ocelot movement and density in Panthera’s research base in the northern Brazilian Pantanal and across Mesoamerica. Read more about this beautiful cat in the fifth installment in our Small Cat Spotlight series meant to shine a light on the 33 species of small wild cats found around the globe.
