Conservation CATalyst targets indigenous peoples, scientists, schoolchildren, and the general public, all of whom play a critical role creating change. Our initiatives focus on understanding wild cats through the best available science and applying this knowledge through education and outreach to not only prevent extinctions but to better the world for people too. 
Our vision
The vision of Conservation CATalyst is to live in a world where wild places and wildlife are cherished and people take moral responsibility for environmental protection. Our mission is to advance study, appreciation, conservation, and protection of the world’s wild cats as catalysts for protection of biological diversity.
