Community Programs

Though Felidae Conservation Fund conservation activities span the globe, we are based in the Bay Area. Pumas and their smaller cousin, the bobcat, face problems that are specific to highly urbanized areas. One of the main conservation issues that threatens pumas is a lack of education, which can lead to a misunderstanding of these beautiful creatures and their important role in the ecosystem.

We have built a database repository for wildlife imagery collected on public, state, county, city and private lands. Our work is focused on conservation of wild felids but we collect images of all wildlife for use in research and land planning.

We are building a community backyard program that partners with residential communities to collect wildlife images on private properties. If you think you have wildlife moving through your property or have seen it, we want to work with you!

At Felidae we believe in the importance of helping to instill in young people an appreciation for the natural world and the importance of taking steps now to protect it for future generations. We run a set of educational programs to inform our communities about wild cats and local ecosystems, and the core of this work is a set of environmental education programs for middle and high schools.
