Illegal Trade

Tigers and leopards have some of the most beautiful coats of any animal on Earth. Unfortunately, this makes them especially appealing to poachers, who sell their coats on the black market. Their bones, teeth, and claws are also found in everything from household decorations to traditional medicine. Rampant poaching has pushed many iconic species—including tigers and leopards—closer to extinction than ever before.

Conflict with Humans

Climate change and deforestation are forcing many cat species out of their natural habitats. As their homes disappear, so do the food sources they rely on. This leads to fatal clashes for cats, people, and livestock. Coexistence starts with education.

MisCATceptions

Even after decades of research, there is still much we need to learn about these elusive animals to ensure their survival. Scientists around the world are racing to understand more about the factors pushing cat species toward extinction. The more we learn, the more quickly we can save them.
