Panthera's mission is to ensure the future of the world's 37 species of wild cats through scientific leadership and global conservation action. We achieve this by collaborating with, supporting and fostering the world's leading wild felid conservationists in conducting rigorous scientific research, planning and implementing conservation actions, and working with local, national and international stakeholders to advance wild cat conservation. Panthera believes that large, contiguous populations of wild cats are important indicators of intact functioning ecosystems, and that the focused protection of wild cats furthers the conservation of a large number of other species present in those ecosystems.
