Patagonia Puma Project
This Project applied an ecosystem approach that considered the complex predator-prey interactions in the montane and forested habitats of Chilean Patagonia. This study focused on preserving the entire ecosystem: the landscape, predators, and prey.
Snow Leopards in Mongolia
The elusive snow leopard is a flagship species for the mountains of Asia, occupying habitat across twelve countries. As few as 3,500 individuals remain in the wild today.
Arabian Leopards in Oman
The Arabian Leopard is the smallest leopard subspecies native to the Arabian Peninsula, and is classified by the IUCN as critically endangered, with fewer than 200 animals remaining in the wild.
Small Felids in Argentina
The Andean Cat (Oreailurus jacobita) only lives in the high-altitude desert areas of the Andes (the Puna region) of Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile. This species is mysterious, extremely elusive, and very rare. With increasing human activity in the Puna region, the delicate balance in this ecosystem is breaking.
Fishing Cats in Thailand
This project was initiated in 2003 in response to a sharp decline in fishing cat populations throughout the species' range, the subsequent elevation of fishing cats from Vulnerable to Endangered on the IUCN Red List, and a lack of information about the species' distribution, ecology, threats, and conservation status.
Research is one of several tools that can assist in answering pressing questions about changes to the natural world and the impact on wild felids. Direct effects from increasing global human populations on species, wild lands and entire ecosystems are building, and secondary and tertiary effects are being identified and studied as most of the entire family of wild cat species are in decline.
