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.
