Although there are many wildlife charities who try to protect all of the endangered species and have different action plans for each animal, Panthera is an organisation which is wholly dedicated to the protection of the world’s 38 wild cat species and their habitats. Panthera are aware of the fact that by having cat species that are endangered, food chains are being jeopardised and this can lead to other species becoming endangered or at risk. They spend a lot of their time informing local authorities and the public in general about this and then go onto create strategies to protect the cats and their habitats whilst working alongside local governments, scientific organisations, biologists and others from around the globe who are dedicated to helping these animals. The cats that are most at risk are the: jaguars, leopards, tigers, lions, pumas and cheetahs. These cats all need their own special program to be set up which directly relates to their needs, habitats, food sources and the threats against them. An example of one of Panthera’s main projects is the Tigers Forever Program which has enabled local law enforcement to be trained to prevent poachers from being able to access the tigers by using up-to-date technology such as Poacher-Cams and thermal imaging cameras which allow them to monitor tigers, the tigers’ prey and poachers. A main goal for Panthera is to increase the populations of wild cats each year and with the effort that this organisation puts into their goals, there certainly is hope that they will be able to do this.
