WildFutures is dedicated to advancing the protection of large carnivores,
with special emphasis on mountain lions. We work with scientists and
wildlife agencies to understand and convey the important role that top
predators play in the landscape. Through the power of education, media, and
the best available science, we collaborate with other organizations to find
cost-effective ways to conserve carnivores and address negative perceptions
Founded in 1994, WildFutures is a project of Earth Island Institute. We
bridge the gap between science and conservation. We believe developing a
greater understanding and appreciation of mountain lions will not only
advance the protection of these animals but also promote safe co-existence
between people and wildlife.
Because of the complexity of issues facing wildlife, WildFutures also
offers capacity building programs to environmental and conservation groups,
to help build strong leaders and thriving organizations. By providing
essential tools, trainings, and resources for many groups, we have a ripple
effect reaching far beyond our immediate projects.
