                   Research & Education
Conservation CATalyst is the only organization in the world devoted exclusively to the conservation of the world’s 38 wild cat species, not just the big ones. Since cats are top predators, if we can conserve them we are protecting the millions of species of plants and animals within their habitats. 

All of Conservation CATalyst's projects focus on gaining novel scientific data on wild cats while at the same time helping local communities with which they coexist. What differentiates us from other scientific organizations is that we translate these data to develop engaging curriculum and outreach programs. By centering on cats, we inspire people to get excited about science and nature.    

Together, we are making the world a better place for cats and people!

Conservation CATalyst collects the first video footage of the only known wild jaguar that resides in the US
 Jaguars are an important part of North American fauna but were effectively removed in southwestern states by predator eradication campaigns.  Fortunately, jaguars continue to occasionally disperse into Arizona from Sonora, Mexico.  The biggest threat to jaguars in America is habitat destruction, primarily from open pit mines (such as the Rosemont Copper Mine).  The primary threat to jaguars in Mexico is illegal killing. 
This jaguar (called El Jefe) was born in Mexico but has spent his entire adult life in Arizona.
