With your help, we are working to protect the most imperiled wild cat species, but there’s so much more to do. Will you rise to our Second Annual Million Dollar Act for Big Cats Challenge by the end of 2017? All donations before midnight on December 31 will be doubled by a group of generous donors.

A Bright Future for Wild Cats
So many stories from the field this year have made us optimistic about the future of the world's wild cats. With your help, we are tackling the biggest threats to big cats wherever they live: increasing security in protected areas, providing law enforcement with the tools they need to stop and arrest poachers, and building tolerance among communities that live with big cats. And thanks to you, it’s working.
But our work is not done. That’s why we’re asking you to join in our Second Annual Million Dollar Act for Big Cats Challenge and give the world’s most imperiled wild cat species a fighting chance in 2018 and beyond. GoPro has joined a group of Panthera’s loyal donors who are putting $500,000 on the line to inspire you to #actforcats this holiday season. Every dollar you give before midnight on December 31, 2017, will be matched! Thanks to an exciting #GivingTuesday, we’re already more than halfway to our goal. Give now and help us meet the Million Dollar Challenge!
