The Journey Is Here
The Journey of the Jaguar--Panthera's three-year, 10-nation conservation odyssey from Mexico to Argentina--recently launched. Visit our new website to follow our scientists as they explore fascinating conservation challenges and opportunities in Colombia.
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.
