In the Brazilian Pantanal, Panthera scientists on the Journey of the Jaguar are seeing firsthand the success of jaguar ecotourism, like photo safaris, in the biodiverse wetland. Our research fellow's study found that the industry in one area raked in over $6.7 million more (!!) than the financial damages suffered by ranchers who lost livestock.
A Panthera Power Group
In an unprecedented move in the conservation world, Panthera has launched the Conservation Council, a global advisory board convening more than 60 of the world's most respected and influential public figures, including co-chairs Glenn Close and Jane Alexander, to help protect the world’s vanishing wild cats and their landscapes.
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.
