Wild Cats Conservation Alliance
Wild Cats Conservation Alliance's mission is to save wild tigers and Amur leopards for future generations by funding carefully chosen projects.
The Amur tiger (Panthera tigris tigris, formerly known as the Siberian tiger) is one of the largest cats in the world and today, fewer than 500 can be found in the Russian Far East with a small number ranging across the border into China and possibly North Korea.
Zoos are by far the largest donors to WildCats Conservation Alliance and have donated over £2.7 million to tiger and Amur leopard conservation since 1997 through its previous incarnations – 21st Century Tiger and ALTA.
By pooling donations zoos can make a bigger impact than by donating alone. The scientific rigour used in selecting proposals means that zoos can be assured of best practice and good conservation value.
