Felines face many threats

BONN, Germany (Landscape News) — How would you react if you found yourself face to face with a leopard?

Big cats, including cheetahs, jaguars, leopards, lions, pumas, snow leopards and tigers face the threat of retaliatory attacks every day. Their populations decrease at an alarming rate due to poaching, illegal trade, loss of habitat and prey, climate change as well as human-wildlife conflicts.

To save these magnificent species, a group of conservationists from Youth for Wildlife Conservation (Y4WC) shared innovative methods to reduce human-wildlife conflict at a recent Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) digital summit. Salina Abraham, GLF youth coordinator shares highlights.
