Our culture gobbles up beautiful images of wildlife, but we often fail to realize that those pictures are all we will have left in the future if decisive action is not taken to preserve that precious wildlife. It is real boots-on-the-ground organizations like Panthera that make a difference. Saving the planet's big cats is a great mission that goes beyond the preservation of large felines, as these are top predators in the food chain and in order to save them entire ecosystems must be preserved, factoring in human needs in the affected territories as well. Panthera's work in Brazil's Pantanal is a prime example of this kind of work. The wonderful book TIGERS FOREVER that is just coming out, a joint effort bringing Panthera together with National Geographic photographer Steve Winter, author Sharon Guynup, and the National Geographic book division, is visually stunning, emotionally charged and intellectually compelling. It will surely go a long way to continue spreading the word about how important saving our big cats is. Panthera is a leading organization doing real, sustained, passionate work. Way to go Panthera!
