Big Cats (NatGeo)
Big cats worldwide are under threat - for many populations, local extinctions are imminent. Lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, jaguars, and other top felines are victims of habitat loss and degradation as well as conflicts with humans. Losing these majestic predators would create a devastating impact on our ecosystem. The Big Cats Initiative, founded in 2009, is taking action to assure big cats in the wild are not gone forever. Partnering with some of the world’s leading big cat experts, the initiative funds on-the-ground research and innovative conservation projects to protect our planet’s top felines and leads a global public awareness campaign to shine light on the issue. Each outstanding image in this 12-month calendar is accompanied by a spacious grid with moon phases and international holidays. National Geographic supports vital work in conservation, research, exploration, and education. The calendar includes a 3-year at-a-glance page and is earth friendly, printed with soya-based inks on FSC certified paper.
