Big Cats Predators Under Threat

This special day is to raise awareness of the world’s wild fauna and flora.
Each year there is a different focus.
In 2015 it was ‘Time to get serious about wildlife crime’
2016 ‘The future of wildlife is in our hands’
2017 ‘Listen to the young voices’

2018 this year, World Wildlife Day focuses on:
The Big Cats – Predators Under Threat’.

The Big Cats are such a powerful icon for the whole of our wild world that the CITES secretariat has co-organised the International Big Cats Film Festival along with The Jackson Wildlife Film festival. The winners will be announced on March 2nd and we can look forward to being able to watch the winning entry in the near future.

Our Big Cats …
… the lion, cheetah, leopard, jaguar, tiger, snow leopard and cougar.
The key to the success of natural ecosystems in a large part of the world.

The Lion – by far the most social of the Big Cats

 

The Leopard
Solitary and tree loving

 

The fastest of the Big Cats – The Cheetah

 

The Jaguar of  South  America

 

The Snow Leopard – very much at home in the coldest of environments

 

The Cougar of North & South America

 

And finally – the largest of them all
The Tiger
