Save Big Cats!
Lions across Africa have declined to about 20,000. As few as 3,000 wild cheetahs roam Namibia and only 6,000 snow leopards remain in the Himalayas.
National Geographic's Big Cats Initiative has been able to support pilot programs that effectively combat the poaching, poisoning, pesticides, and habitat loss that are eradicating big cats.

A 22-month-old female scaredy cat tiger appeared to get the shock of her young life when she encountered a dead leaf floating on a pool of water in the Bandhavgarh National Park, India. Clearly unusure about just what was approaching her, the partially submerged youngster’s tail shot up in the air and with teeth bared she let out her most fearsome growl - all in an effort to scare the humble leaf away.
Two ferocious tigers were forced to walk away with their tails between their legs after being scared off by a protective mother bear. Two bear cubs and their mum escape unscathed despite the close encounter with the huge cats, which were eventually forced to run away. Wildlife photographer Aditya Singh captured the battle on camera during a visit to Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan, India.
Rajasthan plans tiger corridor, connecting reserves Under the ‘Tiger Biosphere Reserve’ project, the corridor will be developed connecting Keoladeo, Ranthambore, Sawai Mansingh, Ramgarh, Jawahar Sagar and Dara sanctuaries falling under Bharatpur, Sawai Madhopur, Kota and Bundi districts of the state.
“Due to the growing numbers of the big cats in the Ranthambore National Park, the tigers usually stray out of their territory and go missing. They become easy prey to villagers and poachers in such cases,” a forest department officer has said.
