Endangered Species & Wildlife - cats - Feline Species

Big Cats Online

Big Cats Online offers a general introduction to the various species of cat living in the wild today. It not only covers the 'Big Cats' - Leopard, Lion, Tiger, Jaguar, Cheetah and Puma, but also introduces all of the lesser known 'Wild Cat' species.

Cat Specialist Group
The Cat Specialist Group is an international panel of over 170 scientists, wildlife managers and other specialists from 40 countries, who have volunteered their expertise to the Species Survival Commission of IUCN - The World Conservation Union, which is based in Switzerland. This site provides detailed information on many species including survival status.

World Lynx
Dedicated to information on the endangered global situation of the Lynx species The only wild feline that still spans the breadth of both Old and Worlds in the northern hemisphere.

Information complements of

The cats are grouped according to the five geopolitical regions in which they occur:

Sub-Saharan Africa
North Africa and Southwest Asia
Tropical Asia
the Americas

There are no cats (other than domestic) in Australasia and Oceania.
Some cats occur in more than one region. Where there is sufficient information, an account has been written for each region in which a species occurs (cheetah, caracal, wildcat, lion, and leopard); otherwise, a single species account is included under the region with which the species is most strongly associated.

Each regional chapter opens with a table which ranks the vulnerability of the species occurring in the region. Species Accounts are presented in that order. This introduction explains the structure of the Species Accounts and the ranking of species vulnerabilty
