Have you ever wondered why the collars researchers put on mountain lions are bulky? One reason is battery size. The larger the battery, the longer the life of the device. This equates to less time that researchers need to spend with the cat overall. Additionally, these collars are actually quite light and provide valuable insight into the daily lives of mountain lions. Check out the article to learn more: bit.ly/CollaredCat

Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has proposed increasing the mountain lion quota from 581 to 653. The Wildlife Board will meet on August 30 to make their final decision. Prior to their meeting, there will be several opportunities for the public to come out and voice their opinion about the increase at the State's Regional Advisory Council meetings.

Forget your scented candles this #TigerTuesday--we’re going for Eau de Bengal Tiger instead. Partner photographer @nickkleer gives us the play-by-play, as this #tigress "scent marks while she watches a #leopard in the branches above, and shows she is the dominant predator in this forest.” Is it just us, or does that expression also look like she’s cheekily sticking out her tongue at the other #cat? With #GlobalTigerDay approaching on July 29, keep an eye out for a #specialedition #InstagramTakeover next week—a mystery #photography duo are going to let loose some of their #tigers on our IG feed! And check the link in our bio to get ready for weeklong celebration.

Snow leopards and Persian leopards: there are lots of commonalities between these two leopard species. Some of the threats are the same and so are the way to address them. There is nothing more enriching than sharing challenges and experiences with your peers. One year ago Panthera’s @naryntrosen had the chance to spend time with the WWF teams working in Azerbaijan and Armenia to conserve the Persian leopard as well as the partners and communities they work with: from the Academy of Sciences of Nakchivan biologists; and the inspiring Babakhan and his family living in Hirkan National Park; young and talented Afa and veteran biologist Elshad; to Arsen and Alik of WWF Armenia. It was an incredible and unforgettable experience. Despite so many challenges facing the leopards, and having these two countries pained by a never ending conflict, there is so much kindness, love and hope. And that’s a good start for Persian leopards to regain the ground they lost in the past. #conservationoptimism #leopards #conservation #wildlife #armenia #azerbaijan #wwf #persianleopards #predatorsunderthreat

Future of Endangered species :- Asiatic Lion Cub.
The Asiatic lion, a subspecies that split from African lions around 100,000 years ago, once prowled across Asia and the Middle East. Sadly, the lions were hunted nearly to extinction, with as few as ten individuals left in existence by the late 1800s.

Just #lion around! Researcher @jotaylorafrica describes this as a small #pride with “two mature females, a young male around 4 years of age, and three #cubs about 8 months old.” There’s some uncertainty about the cubs’ sire, though: “The young male could be [the father], and we have seen him mounting the females, but there are also two mature males who roam the area, who have also been seen breeding with the females. Every time the big boys are around, the young male disappears, and no one sees him for quite some time.” #Bigcat family dynamics can get hairy when you’re worried about getting killed by larger males! #SouthAfrica #LetLionsLive #lions #lioncubs #bigcats #bigcatsofinstagram #catstagram #lionconservation #wildlifeconservation #predatorsunderthreat #lionsofinstagram #lionsintheroad #lionpride

Hungry? This female #leopard, Shamiso, was spotted stalking the same herd of impalas along the edge of a road as a young male, Acacia, who followed the prey from low in the nearby long grass. In the end, neither cat got its meal in South Africa's @Pilanesberg_National_Park: "Eventually, the impalas changed direction, and the hunt was over," our partner #photographer @byrongrobler told us. "Both leopards went their separate ways." #leopards #leopardsofig #leopardsofinstagram #nationalparks #wildlife #bigcats #bigcatsofinstagram #pilanesberg #pilanesbergnationalpark #catstagram #catsagram #wildlifephotography #predatorsunderthreat #prey #impala #hunt #wildlifeconservation #leopardconservation #showleopardssomelove #southafrica

This pelt is believed to belong to Yo’oko, a young male jaguar (Panthera onca) who roamed the Huachuca Mountains in southern #Arizona back in 2016/2017. He was identified from the rosette patterns on his pelt that matched photographs and data from camera traps. That is because the rosette pattern on a jaguar is unique to that individual, so with an extensive database of jaguar images when pelts are found in seizures or #poaching events the individual animal can be identified. This technique is used for other big cats too, such as #tigers who are also illegally poached for their skins and bones. .

Jaguars are classified as #Endangered in both the #UnitedStates and #Mexico and are threatened primarily by habitat loss. Little is known about this #BigCat’s death, but another threat they face is direct persecution. Living outside of protected areas jaguars come in contact with livestock, which sometimes results in retaliatory killing by farmers, but, as they are endangered it is illegal to kill a Jaguar.
. “We must continue working to overcome the cultural prejudice that jaguars are somehow enemies of people,” said Randy Serraglio, conservation advocate with the Center for Biological Diversity. “Indigenous people of the Americas have revered jaguars as majestic, powerful spirits of the wild for thousands of years. Whoever killed Yo’oko could learn a lot from them”. . 📷 The Center for Biological Diversity

I’ve been fairly off the radar the last 4 weeks. I’ve been in South Africa helping out on a new project. It is the first of its kind. A lion breeding farm where the animals were destined to be killed by canned hunters for trophies, has been taken over and converted into a sanctuary for animals who have been born into this awful trade. The sanctuary can then give them the best captive lifestyle possible. I came here to shoot video and photos to help promote the new project, but with such low budgets and not enough staff, have ended up helping to build new fences to make bigger enclosures and care for the lions too. Please follow so you can keep up to date with the @thelionprojectsa and help spread the word about this incredible project.

These lions were born on a farm and destined to be shot in canned hunts or sold onto the lion breeding market. They have been kept in poor conditions but we have taken them over so they can have the best captive lifestyle possible. We recently moved 14 of them into a much larger enclosure and they are already so much happier. Here is a video of them having some fun. 🎥 by @mattlinson .

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission reached a decision last week regarding the proposed 2019 mountain lion hunt. The proposal was unanimously approved despite the best available science which shows that hunting such a small population would be unsustainable and could jeopardize the long-term survival of the state’s lions. Even though the decision was a hard-hitting blow for mountain lion conservation, we want to encourage you to continue to stay involved and be a voice for America’s lion! You can read more about the hunt on our website: bit.ly/M062918

With fewer #elk to compete for, #wolves preying on #kittens, and increased #hunting quotas, decades’ worth of competing management strategies have negatively worked in concert, contributing to a 48% decline in the #puma population north of #Jackson, #Wyoming.

UPDATE: Results from the proposed #Nebraskan #puma hunt we posted about last week are grim.

For part 2 of #WorldWildlifeDay, we are revisiting a powerful #GoProForACause piece. In "Let the Tiger Go", we follow a story of survival. Muli is 1 of about 400 Sumatran Tigers left in the world. She was found hiding as an injured cub and restored to health by the @tamblingwildlife vets. Threatened by rampant poaching for an illegal wildlife trade, Muli’s survival hinges on the law enforcement protecting her habitat. With help from @pantheracats​, who stands on the front lines between poachers and tigers, Muli was released back into the wild. Make time for a 25-minute film and head to our YouTube to watch.

A few weeks ago we published a post about Tokoloshe, one of our research leopards with a snare firmly embedded around her waist. Due to the extent of her injuries and because we had not captured any new images of her, we came to the conclusion that she had most likely died as a result of these injuries. However, to our surprise she has recently been spotted again on our camera grid. The snare is still firmly in place, but in spite of this she appears to be moving well, covering ground and is in reasonable condition considering her infliction. We continue our efforts to better understand her movements and habits, with the aim of making another attempt to try and capture her to remove the snare.
For more details please read this blog about the plight of Tokoloshe by our partners Panthera http://ow.ly/Dh9X30kC5Ta

Thank you to all PPP personnel who have worked tirelessly to achieve a positive outcome for Tolokoshe; Lajuma Research Centre for their support and advice, all local landowners for granting us permission to traverse their land, Sam and Katy Williams, Oldrich van Schalkwyk and Adrian Tordiffe for offering advice and sharing their extensive knowledge and experience with us.

We’re one week into the @fifaworldcup and in just minutes, Iran will face an uphill battle against a tournament favorite, Spain. 🇮🇷🇪🇸 But Iran is not the only underdog...or should I say undercat...in this story. Repping Iran in our #WorldCupOfWildlife is the Persian leopard! 🐆This Endangered leopard subspecies likely once roamed most of the Caucasus (the mountainous region separating Western Asia and Eastern Europe). Today, there are estimated to be fewer than 1200 individuals left, with the largest extant population occurring in Iran.
Leopards were historically seen as a nuisance, so it was open season for leopard hunting year after year, until the 1950s when they were recognized as a threatened species. But that has not been enough to bring them back from the brink. Widespread political and social change in the early 1990s Soviet Union led to severe habitat fragmentation for leopards and prey species, increased retaliatory killing, and lack of effective wildlife protection measures. 👎 Further, conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan increased factors affecting poaching and habitat encroachment, probably further decimating already small subpopulations. Though political conflicts have subsided, the Persian leopard is still under enormous threat, mainly due to severe habitat fragmentation, but with poaching and retaliatory killing still playing a deadly part.
With the population thin and fragmented, even the loss of one life is detrimental to the species’ survival. .
But all is not lost yet - There are a handful of reintroduction programs working to breed, rehabilitate and release individuals to their former ranges. Mitigating poaching, preparing protected areas, establishing safe corridors and reintroducing individual Persian leopards make for some tall #ConservationGoals for young conservationists, but there is still hope for this Endangered subspecies with swift #ConservationAction!

Fortunate enough to cross paths with this pair of Bengal #tigers in #India’s #BandhavgarhNationalPark, partner photographer @katrinamartlew explains that, regardless of whether it’s #TigerTuesday, "You're on their schedule. If you get to see them, you do; if you don't, you don't." Rendering this stolen moment even more remarkable, she says that the 1-1.5-year-old #cub let loose a practice roar that “shook your bones.” #TigersForever #tiger #tigress #tigersofinstagram #bigcatsofinstagram #catstagram #wildlifeconservation #conservation #predatorsunderthreat #endangeredspecies #catsagram #tigercub #roar

Regrann from @swaroopsingharoy - Sharing one of my favourite Tiger images for World Wildlife Day, specially because this year's theme is "Big Cats: predators under threat" which highlights the need for conservation of all the magnificent Big Cats of our planet.
Wild #tiger populations, which numbered over 100,000 only a century ago, have decreased by 97%, with much of that decline happening in the past 10 years. According to the latest estimates, there are only about 3,900 tigers left in the wild on the entire planet. Of all the big cats, tigers are the most endangered.
Our small actions can have big impacts! Let us stand together and help raise awareness on this vital issue. Let us live our daily life with the smallest negative impact on Big Cats and their habitats. Purchase only certified sustainable products that do not damage their habitats. I am sure you'd never want to live in a world without these magnificent creatures!

Regrann from @lycaonpictus93 - It's World Wildlife Day! This year's theme is "Big Cats: Predators Under Threat" so here's a close up of a lion in @tswalu, South Africa. Lions are classed as vulnerable on the IUCN redlist with a decreasing population trend.
You can learn more about lions here: www.iucnredlist.org/details/15951/0

How majestic are Yangyu and Linmao, walking around the Tiger Island! Here, in Loro Parque, both of these tigers play a fundamental role when it comes to sensibilitizing the visitors about their situation in the wild: white tigers, due to the irregular color of their fur, are extremely vulnerable and face serious difficulties to survive in nature. The work of modern zoos is crucial for the conservation of the species.

¡Qué majestuosos Yangyu y Linmao paseándose por la Isla del Tigre! Aquí, en Loro Parque, ambos juegan un rol fundamental a la hora de sensibilizar a los visitantes sobre su situación: los Tigres Blancos, debido a la coloración de su pelaje, son muy vulnerables y tienen dificultades para sobrevivir en la naturaleza. La labor de los zoos modernos es crucial para la conservación de la especie.

Wie majestätisch Yangyu und Linmao durch die Tigerinsel spazieren! Hier im Loro Parque spielen beide eine grundlegende Rolle, wenn es darum geht, die Besucher für ihre Situation ihrer Spezies zu sensibilisieren: Die Weißen Tiger sind aufgrund der Färbung ihres Fells sehr verletzlich und haben Schwierigkeiten in der Natur zu überleben. Die Arbeit moderner Zoos ist deswegen entscheidend für den Schutz ihrer Art.

Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) @twigatravelafrica
✴️ They will mark their territories with scent stimuli like urine and visual stimuli like scratch marks, depressions in the grass, and even depositing feces on land features to be easily seen. They are the fastest land animal.
📌They are endemic to grasslands and deserts of all of Africa, excluding the middle of the Sahara, as well as parts of the middle east all the way to India. There are 6 subspecies based of distribution of habitats. 🌍🌏

In 2017, ZERO lions were killed in violation of the Predator Compensation Fund.
PCF pays Maasai livestock owners for a portion of the value of their livestock lost to predators, on the condition that no predators are killed in retaliation. Predators killed 4,519 livestock last year, and $179,299 in compensation was paid. Thanks to support from our local partners, the lion population in Big Life's area of operation is one of the few lion populations in all of Africa that is growing, not declining.
