Protecting Wild Cats Protects the Earth
Panthera is the only organization in the world devoted exclusively to the conservation of the world’s 38 wild cat species and their ecosystems. Our core programs focus on conserving the largest and some of the most imperiled cats – tigers, lions, jaguars, snow leopards, leopards, pumas and cheetahs.
Conserving big cats and their habitats supports the health and survival of thousands of plant and animal species around the globe, including people.
In protecting big cats, we are protecting ourselves.
