Tigers face many threats in the wild, including loss of habitat, loss of prey, being hunted for their skins and other body parts for traditional medicine ingredients, as well as conflict with humans for living space. The long term survival of tigers however, rests on their continued existence in the wild.
WildCats Conservation Alliance is an initiative of the Zoological Society of London and Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation and is based in London’s Regent’s Park. It is the culmination of merging two well-respected wildlife funding programmes; 21st Century Tiger and the Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance (ALTA) in 2018.
WildCats Conservation Alliance funds carefully chosen projects conserving wild tiger & Amur leopards on behalf of zoos, corporate and public supporters. Run by zoos for zoos, it acts as an impartial intermediary for any supporters who want to make tangible contributions to credible and impactful conservation projects.
WildCats provides a long term, bespoke service to meet the needs of donors. It seeks to promote the role of good zoos in conservation, facilitating a global, collective eff ort to conserve wild cats in their natural habitat
WildCats Conservation Alliance is supported by regional zoo organisations like the Zoo Aquarium Association (ZAA), the European Zoo Association (EAZA) and the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA). This alliance is promoting awareness of the threats facing tigers in the wild and collectively we can make a difference.
