Mission: Panthera's mission is to ensure the future of wild cats through scientific leadership and global conservation action.
Geographic areas served: North, Central and Latin America, Africa, Asia, Middle East
Programs: Panthera is working to ensure a future for the world's big cats (tigers, lions, jaguars and snow leopards) by converting science into conservation action on a global scale. Utilizing the knowledge and expertise of the world’s leading cat biologists, Panthera develops, implements, and oversees range-wide species conservation strategies for the largest and most imperiled cats. Panthera forges partnerships from the bottom up with local communities, park guards, and educators; and top down with policy-makers, environmental agencies, presidents and prime ministers. We work on a scale that will make a difference - globally. Our reach spans northern Argentina through Mexico; India to the Russian Far East; Senegal to South Africa; and Mongolia to Afghanistan. Panthera currently focuses its range-wide conservation strategies on the world’s largest, most imperiled cats – tigers, lions, jaguars and snow leopards – and is planning conservation strategies for cheetahs, leopards and mountain lions. Panthera also supports research and conservation activities on populations of other cat species, as well as initiatives to improve felid research techniques and methodology.

Panthera not only funds my research, but its staff has also been of constant support, from helping me organise the logistical aspects of my project to offering advice on scientific approach.

Panthera puts its resources into the research and conservation of wild cats all over the world and their public presence has also helped with extensive awareness-raising. Their focus on protecting not just the cats but also their ecosystems means that a whole range of species and habitats benefit from Panthera’s work. Their projects produce tangible results and all funds donated to this organisation go straight to the work in the field.

I have worked with many nonprofits but my experience with Panthera really stands out. Their staff is incredibly dedicated, creative and passionate about saving big cats. I interact mainly with the Managing Director, Web and Communications Coordinator and the Fundraising Director. Each of these women have impressed me with their creative and inventive ideas, ability to work as a cohesive team, commitment to fulfilling the organization's mission, and commitment to being responsible stewards of their donor's contributions.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Incredible. Panthera has gathered the very best staff from across the globe. They work tirelessly and their passion for saving big cats is incredible - truly inspiring. The excitement and enthusiasm in their office is palpable and contagious.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Establishing more corridors like the Jaguar Corridor in South America, to outfitting park rangers in Asia, fund more researchers and scientists, support community programs. 100% of contributions from supporters goes directly into the field.

Panthera's team is very passionate about their cause and has made significant efforts to effectively help conserve the world's wildcats. In developing this video project, Panthera has played a hands-on role, providing scientific and creative advice. The Managing Director took great care of the product we were producing. She made us feel like we were part of a team developing not just a video, but helping to convey the wider message about protecting our rainforests.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people. Panthera's staff is extremely passionate about their cause, and their passion directly translates to results in the field.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Everyone at Panthera is very kind, helpful and knowledgeable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Really help conserve and save our wildcats and provide scholarships to students and up-and-coming researchers in order to help sustain conservation efforts!
