Target demographics: everyone understand the issues with captive wildcats and why a wild future is important for the survival!

Geographic areas served: all areas in the U.S.

Programs: Legal aid and advocacy; educational programs and materials, and research information.

Mission:
Our mission is to protect and defend all native and non-native wildcats.
Results:
The WildCat Conservation Legal Aid Society was founded on the premise that education and objectivity are the key components in order for us to achieve our mission and to “ensure a wild future for all wildcats.”

Our website provides a valuable reference tool to research the existing state and federal laws that affect wildcats in captivity as well as their comrades in the wild.

Our quarterly newsletter, WildCat Advocate, recaps the latest news around the world on captive and wild cats; legal updates; trafficking, trade and transport of wildlife, scholarly publications of note, and of course our work in progress.

Our legal and academic publication: Journal of the WildCat Conservation Legal Aid Society provides a unique forum for professionals and scholars to analyze and comment on the issues affecting wildcats around the world, reflecting the perspectives of all disciplines including law, education, medicine, science, philosophy, religion, humanities, social science, and art. Contributing authors and artists are experts across the curriculum and from world-renowned institutions.

We continue to bring education out to the community in the form of legal bar conferences, partnering with other organizations; and have become part of international and local coalitions in order to engage collectively in our efforts to restore wild populations and combat the atrocities of commercial exploitation of captive and wild cats. Related public documents are made available on our website.

Our recent initiative to prohibit caged, confined or canned hunting of big cats is building a strong group of public supporters! We will continue to press our federal and state congressional members to implement measures to ban this activity (http://www.wcclas.org/prohibitcannedhuntbigcats.html)

We will be launching a comprehensive captive-wildcat data-base in 2014 Project Sabu along with in-depth research reports on the status of captive wildcats in the U.S. and domestic and international trade.
