When we invest in a cause, nothing is more deeply satisfying than to know our support has direct impact. Panthera utilise our funds in the field, in essence connecting us with opportunities of real value, benefiting conservation, community initiatives and research vital to saving Big Cats.
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!
Finding a way to effectively support conservation is difficult, suspicions that funds are not applied earnestly to the cause abound. Not so with Panthera - all fund go to the cause. Also while I love big cats and that's my goal, the collateral benefits of preserving predators that roam large territories is the conservation of all other creatures and plants, and yes even humans.
Panthera combines solid science with an appreciation of the realities of politics, their strategies reflect the need to simultaneously address these factors to bring about change.
Panthera - unquestionable cause, effective strategy and professional implementation
I have ALWAYS loved the big cats & the dedicated work of Pantera around the world is so very important--from the science, to the education, to the field projects, & the grants they provide--the sacrifices made by Pantera's people--& many volunteers, their passion & tireless efforts, & the elegance with which they communicate has made MANY people who would otherwise have NO CLUE understand how--as Pantera says: "Cats act as landscape guardians & their presence indicates healthy, intact ecosystems that are crucial for all life, including people."
Dedicated volunteers, highly accessible to the public in keeping me informed about issues I never knew about before, and most of all doing such essential conservation and scientific research work. I'm astounded by the level of dedication the members of this organisation have, and the way they have pioneered new research in the field to help conservation efforts. Truly worthy of recognition.
I have always been passionate about the big cats, how I remained uninformed about this wonderful organization until about a year ago, well, its a mystery, but I am grateful to this group, their dedication, their selfless work on preservation and educational posts, documentries etc rank among the best. They are my first choice for donations and I try and contribute as much as I am able. A worthy nonprofit.
A wonderful organization with astounding people that wholeheartedly sacrifice the essentials of their lives in saving Big cats in our world. I can sum up the greatness of this organization in one word-Awesome. they do their very best in preventing our Big Cats from being wiped out permanently from the face of our planet.
Panthera is a brilliant organization. They are committed to animals they champion and also the educating the world about those animals, their environments, and their importance to the world. Their transparency allows those of us who support them with our pennies to do so secure in the knowledge that even we are able to help. Brava, Panthera!
I am impressed and excited by the mission of Panthera to save endangered wil cats. Its a terrific organization, There does not seem to be a lot of overhead and the money goes straight to the programs that benefit these beautiful creatures. I am hooked as its become one of my favorite charities. Keep up the great work!
I found Panthera while searching for an organization to work with for my daughter's fundraising efforts:
She wants to help save the Siberian tiger. I am impressed with the mission and methods of Panthera. They are very innovative. And the people are so clearly passionate about what they do.
All donor funds go directly to the field, which is unique and completely awesome. Panthera does great things!
Panthera sets the standard for wild-life charities. It is clear in its objectives - to save the tragically endangered big cats on our planet. It is clear in its methods - apply scientific measurements and methods to conservation and protection. It is clear in its fund-raising and what the money pays for - properly organised research trips and analysis of results put into operation and practice and . It recruits the best in the field.
It has determination and unrelenting drive.
Serious and science-based charity. I'm happy to support projects that show they know what they're talking about, and they definitely are an authority in big feline protection.
They're big enough to be effective in positively influencing local governments and communities with realistic projects, but they're not a behemoth with overgrown directive staff.
I definitely hope success for their efforts for saving big cats.
I have known about Panthera for almost four years now. In that short time, particularly through its communications and public relations campaigns, it has grown from a barely-visible organization around the world to one, if not the most, influential big cat conservation effort out there. I am proud to have contributed to its cause and will continue to support the organization's grand work.
Panthera is a brilliant organisation. I believe that the diversity of life on earth is a wonderful thing, which should always be protected and cherished. Therefore, I fully support the fantastic work that Panthera do to protect big cats.
I am working in Bolivia with tourism and have been lucky to meet some of the staff of panthera , without their work big cats throughout the world would be a lot more local extinctions. The plans they implement especially with cattle ranchers and the jaguar corridor will go a long way to ensuring amazing animals such as Jaguars a future.
I've been following Panthera for a while now on Facebook and the work they do for the continual survival of big cats is fantastic. The effort they put into conservation and education is second to none and I fully support their efforts to preserve the most magnificent of animals that walk this planet, the big cats. Organisations like Panthera are more important than ever in today's climate and their work, effort and dedication is vital and should be applauded.
I just recently discovered Panthera, and absolutely love their mission and all the great work they are doing with wild cats. Big cats are my favorite animal, and I am happy that there is an organization dedicated just to them!
I recently found out about this group and completely support their work with our endangered cats they have brought further insight into the struggles our large cats endure and work with locals in the areas where conflicts b/t humans and cats occur to educate and assist the locals to reduce conflicts and encourage coexistence b/t the two.
After realizing that I want to spend my life studying and working for the conservation of wildlife I soon discovered Panthera. Knowing that 100% of every donation is going into the field makes this in my opinion the leading organisation for felid conservation. Thank you, Panthera.... for fighting for these magnificent animals and making sure that this planet keeps some of its most beautiful wonders.
I've always been a great lover of the nature and specially the cats, large and small, I am already member of WWF, and adopted a tiger, but now that I found this organization I'm happy to know that we are a lot of people that know the importance to preserv the felines specially the large ones, there's a lot of work to do, and with organizations like Panthera will be more probably to protect our beloved cats.
