Building capacity for conservation of wild felids and their supporting ecosystems in China

We are working to strengthened national and local capacity applied to the monitoring and conservation of wild felid species throughout China. China remains one of the world’s most bio-diverse nations, with a vast array of ecosystems and species, including 13 of the world’s 36 wild felid species. This work is addressing China’s lack of capacity and expertise to monitor and manage felid biodiversity within their expanding number of PAs. Wild felids are both particularly threatened and particularly good umbrella species, providing a charismatic model for conservation.
