Who We Are
The Felidae organization is a resourceful, passionate and dedicated team of conservationists who are working to safeguard global ecosystems, with felid species as natural world guardians.
Our staff and excellent group of volunteers bring varying skill sets and creativities to our efforts, and we get a lot done on very low overhead. We are always looking for new ways to leverage our complementary skill sets.
We have a growing number of projects that volunteers participate in, expanding our reach and helping us introduce the concept of a balanced natural world into every living room, computer screen and smart phone; making our ecosystems a priority to all.
