The purpose of this program is to provide students with a general understanding of conservation and the importance of preserving wildlife by implementing educational programs centered around wild cats. In order to accomplish these tasks, we work closely with educators to train, teach, and evaluate learning in the classroom and in the field. We aim to instill an appreciation for felids and a well-rounded knowledge of their ecology. Importantly, our lessons also instill a sense of responsibility to protect these charismatic species and the habitats in which they live. Educating youth about wild cats catalyzes their interest in nature, and helps spread conservation messages to their parents, relatives, friends, and community.

“In the end, we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand and we will understand only what we are taught.”
"There would be very little point in my exhausting myself and other conservationist themselves in trying to protect animals and habitats if we weren’t at the same time raising young people to be better stewards. " ~Jane Goodall
