Panthera was a global wild cat conservation organization, whose mission was to ensure a future for big cats and the vast landscapes on which they depended.
The number of wild tigers had dwindled from 100,000 one hundred years ago to just 3,200 remaining today. Panthera sought to reduce threats to tigers from poaching, overhunting of prey species by local people, habitat loss and human-tiger conflict.
Like all charitable organisations, they depended on raising funds in order to be able to continue their work.
