Relentless poaching for fur and body parts, continuous habitat loss due to urban and agricultural development, and indiscriminate illegal killing as a result of human-cat conflict are among the threats pushing big cats to the brink of extinction. Action needs to be taken to ensure the future of these magnificent animals.
I am passionate about wildlife conservation, especially big cats. Therefore, I am currently pursuing a master's degree in zoology with the Global Field Program at Miami University. With this fundraiser, I hope to raise awareness of the plight of big cat species. Please join me in supporting the conservation of big cats by donating to Panthera.
Panthera is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to ensure the future of wild cats through scientific leadership and global conservation action. Panthera has created conservation strategies for the largest and most imperiled wild cats: tigers, lions, jaguars, and snow leopards. Projects have also been created for Iranian cheetahs, cougars, and leopards. 100% of donations that Panthera receives goes directly to supporting their conservation and education programs!
