Like so many of you, we love the majestic big cats in the world. So of course we wanted to help spread the word about the Cause an Uproar initiative. Big cats in the world need our help. They are disappearing quickly due to habitat loss as well as conflict with humans. Everything from lions in Kenya to snow leopards in the Himalaya, the big cats all need our help.
To address this critical situation, the National Geographic Society and Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert, have launched the Big Cats Initiative, a comprehensive program that supports on-the-ground conservation projects, education, and economic incentive efforts and a global public-awareness campaign. You may have seen the advert on television about Cause an Uproar (the stars of the movie We Bought a Zoo are helping spread the word), and you may even remember our post about trick or treating for big cats too!
We hope you will visit the Cause an Uproar site and get involved.
