As part of National Geographic Society’s Big Cats Initiative, National Geographic Education is working with our explorers and grantees to help teachers like you educate your students about the importance of big cats and conservation efforts to protect these large predators. From lions in Kenya to snow leopards in the Himalaya, the big cats of the world need help. Lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, jaguars, and other top felines are quickly disappearing, all falling victims to habitat loss and degradation, and conflicts with humans.
This collection of selected videos, activities, and case studies give students a clear view of the biology and threats to big cats and their significance in maintaining healthy ecosystems. National Geographic Society believes that education is a key component in conservation. Help save these important large predators by supporting the Big Cats Initiative.
