Lions inhabit the plains and Savannah's throughout most of sub-Saharan Africa, These majestic cats are vulnerable and currently threatened by habitat loss. Jaguars currently inhabit Central and South America. They can be found in wet and dry forests, Savannah's, and shrub lands. Habitat loss and retaliatory killing continue to threaten the survival of the Jaguars as they are near threatened. Leopards inhabit the southern portions of Asia and much of Africa, and are found in a variety of habitats from forests to rocky hillsides. These felines are vulnerable and the greatest threats to this species are revenge killings for attacks on livestock and illegal hunting for their highly prized furs. Cheetah populations are now isolated to the Savannah's and grasslands of sub-Saharan Africa. Cheetahs are currently vulnerable and are threatened by hunting, habitat loss and the decline of prey populations. Snow Leopards inhabit the rugged, mountainous terrain of Central Asia and the Himalayan region. These cats are vulnerable and are threatened by habitat loss, diminished food supply, hunting for the illegal wildlife trade and revenge killings by herders. Puma's are the least of our concern right now.
Our biggest concern are Tigers. There are as few as 3,890 tigers in the wild. Largest of all cats, the tiger is one of the most threatened species on Earth. These beautiful cats are threatened by growing human populations, loss of habitat, illegal hunting (of both tigers and their prey species) and expanded trade in tiger parts used as traditional medicines.
Protecting these wonderful cats in an increasingly developed world requires a big commitment. It starts with people like you. Donate today and Join the Pride!
