ENSURING A FUTURE FOR BIG CATS

Big cats worldwide are under threat—for many populations, local extinctions are imminent 
due to habitat loss, degradation, and conflicts with humans.

Lions have disappeared from 95% of their historic range in Africa and their populations have declined 43% in the 21 years between 1993-2014. 

The African cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus jubatus) is an endangered big cat that, despite longterm conservation efforts and successful captive breeding programs, remains in decline thanks to human poaching and habitat destruction.

African cheetah populations have disappeared from more than 90% of their historic range with an 87% decline in “resident range” populations.

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE AN IMPACT

 

As big cats continue to lose habitat, suffer the loss of prey due to poaching, and struggle to live in harmony 
with human populations, our investment in scientists and conservationists who can help protect big cats is more important than ever.  

With your help, we can continue to support innovative projects to protect big cat species and help communities thrive.
