Big Cats

Lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards and other big cats are quickly disappearing which could create a devastating impact on our ecosystem.


National Geographic's Big Cats Initiative focuses on halting the decline of big cats in the wild. Our scientists are partnering with local communities to stop poaching, build barriers, and save habitats.


When you purchase Big Cats gear from the National Geographic store or one of our partners, you're directly helping support our cause.
