On this Endangered Species Day, Panthera celebrates the important work being done throughout Asia to save wild #tigers
from disappearing. This tigress and her cubs were recently spotted on the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve in Central India, where Panthera has trained ranger teams to protect tigers against poachers---the cat's biggest threat. #EndangeredSpeciesDay #stopextinction #TigersForever
Happy Mother's Day! All of us here at Panthera hope you get the chance to spend some quality time with a mom in your life--like this lioness and her weeks-old cub on the border of Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area near Ndutu, Tanzania. Photograph by Nick Garbutt. #Mother
And they’re off! Dr. Alan Rabinowitz (@alan_rabinowitz
) and the scientists of Panthera are on an epic conservation adventure—the Journey of the Jaguar—and we’d love for you to join. Partner with us in this race against time to secure the jaguar’s ancient, 5,000-mile path stretching from Mexico to Argentina. This beautiful wild cat’s future—and that of the incredible biodiversity depending on its survival—is at stake. Check out our new site journeyofthejaguar.org [link in bio] to follow along!

Looking through photos from our camera traps in Africa recently, our lion survey coordinator Phil Henschel saw a chilling sight: poachers with guns and snares walking the same trail as a rare cheetah--only minutes apart.
In Africa and around the world, we use data from our camera traps to catch poachers and bring them to justice. Will you help us get more eyes on the wild and save big cats with a gift today?
Chip in now [link in bio] to help us reach our goal of 200 new camera traps before midnight on May 5. We're halfway there... and time is running out! Whatever you can spare will make a difference in the fight to save wild cats.

Our camera traps provide rich and detailed information about big cats and their landscapes. For example, we can use the spot patterns on this leopard (captured by a camera in southern Africa) to identify him (or her) in future photos. With multiple photos of the same cat, we can track behavior and movements over time, uncovering details about this individual animal and the area's leopards in general.

Remember this tiger from Thailand's Eastern Forest Complex? To keep this big cat safe, we need more eyes on the wild. Will you help us meet our Earth Day goal of 200 new camera traps before midnight on Friday, May 5?
Thailand's Eastern Forest Complex is larger than the state of Delaware, so these cubs are nearly impossible to find, but poachers are determined—and we need to stay one step ahead.
In remote areas like this one, Panthera's custom-built, motion-activated camera traps help us keep track of big cats and the threats they face. It takes hundreds of camera traps at $150 each to monitor big cats in their vast landscapes. Chip in now [link in bio] to help us meet our Earth Day goal and put 200 new camera traps in the wild.

For the first time in 10 years, endangered Indochinese tiger cubs were spotted in eastern Thailand. 🐯
This is a very rare image of a wild Indochinese tiger I photographed by camera trap in Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary in the Western Forest Complex of Thailand for my @natgeo
Tiger Story and NG Books "Tigers Forever".
Today it was announced by Thailand’s Dept of National Parks that in the eastern part of Thailand
A sign of hope for the endangered tiger, a new scientific survey has confirmed the presence of the world’s second breeding population of Indochinese tigers and provided the first photographic evidence of tiger cubs in eastern Thailand.
We need to realize deep in our hearts that animals have emotions too. If we can treat them better - maybe we could find some empathy inside of us to treat each other better also.
There are only 3400 tigers left in the wild! We need to fight for the right of jaguars to live - peacefully and without being killed for the traditional medicine market, and other trade. Help stop the demand for endangered species used in this practice! “When the buying stops, the killing can too” #wildaid
Big Cats are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not. The forests and grasslands of big cats give us 50% of our oxygen and 75% of fresh water. If we can save big cats we can help save ourselves!

The world's second known breeding population (hint: that means cubs!) of Indochinese tigers has been discovered in eastern Thailand through a camera trap survey from Panthera, Freeland and Thailand's Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation. This breeding population could play a significant role in our fight to protect one of the world's most endangered big cats.
