The Projects

Jaguar Box

Panthera Jaguar Corridor

The Jaguar Corridor Initiative is working to preserve the genetic integrity and future of the jaguar by connecting and protecting core jaguar populations from Mexico to Argentina.

Scientists from the Initiative are working to mitigate human-jaguar conflict surrounding livestock predation by training ranchers in anti-predator husbandry techniques, including building predator-proof enclosures. Field teams also educate local communities about overhunting of jaguar prey species, which encourages livestock predation.

Hyena Box

Botswana Predator Conservation Trust

The goal of the Botswana Predator Conservation Trust (BPCT) is to preserve Africa's large predators - African wild dog, cheetah, leopard, lion and spotted hyena - and their habitats, using scientific inquiry to better understand their behaviors and communication systems.

Research projects vary from population monitoring to livestock husbandry and sustainable agriculture. Through “Coaching for Conservation” programs, BPCT educates primary school children about the importance of conservation and healthy lifestyles.

Redpanda Box

Red Panda Network

The Red Panda Network seeks to save wild red pandas and preserve their habitat by empowering local communities through community-based research, education and carbon mitigation.

The Network’s efforts currently extend to four of the red panda home ranges, with community-based conservation programs in eastern Nepal, east Kachin Burma, Arunachal Pradesh India and an awareness campaign in China.

Turtleq4c Box

Turtle Conservation Fund

Many species of tortoises and freshwater turtles face imminent extinction without effective conservation action. Habitat loss and burgeoning demand for turtles as food and as ingredients in traditional medicines are chief threats to their existence.

The Turtle Conservation Fund (TCF) is a strategizing and funding partnership coalition of leading turtle conservation organizations and individuals focused on ensuring the long-term survival of tortoises and freshwater turtles.

TCF’s work involves building partnerships and supporting focused conservation actions, including captive breeding and management programs, protection and management of native populations, field-based conservation biology and applied research, and field and trade surveys.
