After three decades of civil war, Angola's wildlife in areas like Luengue-Luiana National Park are clawing their way back to life with the help of the government and partners including Panthera. Read up on the recovery of what Donovan Jooste describes as a piece of the continent ready to be explored by those who "have a chunk of Africa already embedded in their hearts."
China Under Pressure
In response to an overwhelming international outcry over the reversal of a 25-year ban on the use of tiger and rhinoceros parts for medicine, China temporarily reinstated this ban in November 2018. Now, reports are pointing to profit-hungry tiger breeders and farms as the forces responsible for continuing to pressure China to legalize the trade.
Read Panthera's new statement urging China to withstand this pressure and prioritize the survival of our planet's endangered species.
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.
