The big cats of the world need our help. Did you know that there are more tigers living in captivity than there are in the wild? The second annual Big Cat Week will air this Sunday, December 11th through December 17th on Nat Geo WILD. This is not only a great television event, Nat Geo WILD’s Big Cat Week is an extension of National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative (BCI), a long-term commitment to halt the decline of these iconic animals in the wild.
For seven nights, Big Cat Week will showcase visually stunning and powerfully resonant stories of nature’s fiercest felines and the people working to save these majestic cats.

Here is a sneak peek from the show Return of the Clouded Leopards. Two very rare six-week-old clouded leopard cubs are rescued from poachers, but will they learn how to be wild so they can live on their own?
The highlight of Big Cat Week is the showing of Joubert’s film, The Last Lions, which premieres Friday 12/16 at 8P et/pt. A gorgeous film about a lioness and her struggle to keep her family alive, and the length’s she will go to do so. Tune in to Big Cat Week and visit CauseAnUproar.org to learn more.
