In December, Panthera’s most impassioned supporters put $500,000 on the line and challenged us to match it by the end of 2016. Thanks to you, we did.
The Future of Wild Cat Conservation
Thanks to you, we met our Million Dollar Act for Big Cats Challenge goal and are starting off strong in 2017—the first year of our second decade.
Your passion and commitment are crucial to our past and future successes. With your support, we can bring our proven strategies to places where they will make the most difference in the fight to protect wild cats and their landscapes. This includes:
⦁ Extending our world-class law enforcement training from Asia to hotspots in Africa and Latin America
⦁ Expanding our corral building programs, education and other assistance to help local people tolerate big cats in their midst
⦁ Increasing our global surveillance network to more than 15,000 field-based camera-traps around the world
⦁ Strengthening alliances with governments, law enforcement, community leaders and local NGOs to disrupt poaching rings and bring criminals to justice
