Introduction
Felidae Conservation Fund aims to advance the conservation of wild cats and their habitats planetwide through a combination of groundbreaking research, compelling education and cutting-edge technology.

Felidae collaborates on strategic research studies that clearly define a process to understand human impact on wild cats and wild places. There are important steps we can take now to minimize the devastation. The goal is to prevent further extinction of felidae species, and to preserve complete ecosystems around the world. Our contributions build new outlooks toward wild cats and the preservation of global ‘wildness’.

Felidae Conservation Fund is committed to spawning compelling educational messages through stories, visual media and outreach campaigns that pilot a healthy coexistence of humans and felidae species around the world.
