Because of generous past support from other animal lovers like you, we are seeing tangible successes from our early efforts:
In northern Kenya, the Ewaso lion group had dwindled to only 10 lions. But after just three years of innovative conservation work, this group has grown to more than 40 individuals. I wish you could see the lion cubs grow and thrive.
In Zambia, our field team found and confiscated nearly 400 illegally placed poachers' snares in just one year. This has significantly reduced the killing of lions for trinkets, folk "remedies," and bushmeat.
In the Kalahari, our researchers are tracking some 350 remaining cheetahs in that region to complete one of the largest studies undertaken on the fastest land animal. New technology, including DNA sampling, enables us to develop new conservation techniques specifically tailored to cheetahs.
From Tanzania to Nepal, we have helped erect more than 500 sustainable livestock corrals to protect farmers' herds from big cats, which have significantly reduced retaliatory killings.
Certain poisons used to kill lions are no longer for sale in Kenya because of our conservation work.
Our work with big cats is of the scope to have global impact and our successes to date definitively demonstrate that we don't have to watch these magnificent cats dwindle away. We can save these feline kings.
