How to support

The Cat Specialist Group contributes to the long-term conservation of wild cat species. The Cat SG provides education and training programs to expand expert capacities for research, monitoring and conservation and provides scientific information. 

The Cat SG must raise its own funds – like all other specialist groups - and cannot count on subsidies or financial support from IUCN.

Every donation goes directly into cat conservation work and is important to help saving the cats.
