Panthera is an organisation which is wholly dedicated to the protection of the world’s 38 wild cat species and their habitats. Panthera is 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 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.
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.
