Brush Up on Leopards
Did you know that the leopard dines on at least 100 different prey species, has the largest range of all the big cats, and can live up to 19 years in the wild? Visit our leopard page for more fun facts, plus information about threats facing this big cat and how Panthera is protecting it.
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.
