Join in Panthera’s New Project to Protect Big Cats Around the World

Posted on Updated on

From the Zooniverse folks:

Just launched, Camera CATalogue is a new website from Zooniverse and Panthera that allows citizen scientists like you to protect big cats by simply looking at and identifying photos of wildlife!

Panthera works in 50 countries around the globe to protect big cats and their vast landscapes. Motion-activated camera traps are used to count cats and their prey species, identify where they live, and determine how conservation efforts are helping to protect these animals.

These cameras produce thousands of images of fascinating animals, from the iconic leopard and rhino to the lesser-known aardwolf and civet. While certainly high-tech, these cameras do not distinguish between animal species. That is why we need your help to identify the big cats and other wildlife in these photos.

Log onto the Camera CATalogue now and help identify the amazing wildlife in these camera trap images. It’s a fun way to spend a few minutes (or a few hours), test and improve your animal knowledge (who knew what a gemsbok was?!) and support efforts to better protect leopards, other wildlife and their landscapes…without ever leaving your chair!

Otter Love in Singapore

Posted on Updated on

12000 readers of the Straits Times voted for the otter to be one of the 51 objects representing aspects of Singapore’s history.  Having smooth coated otters roam the urban jungles of Singapore is pretty exciting and they seem to be bringing Singaporeans a little closer to loving the wildlife we have!

Enjoy this music video made by 4 otter enthusiasts in celebration of Singapore’s 51st National Day this past 9 Aug:

 

 

Enough is Enough! No More Dead Tigers – Deadline 29 July

Posted on Updated on

 

The Malaysian Conservation Alliance for Tigers (MYCAT) is calling for 100,000 signatures to seek justice for the Malayan tiger by Global Tiger Day on 29 July 2016.

The online petition also calls for strengthened prosecution against wildlife crime and better protection for Tiger habitats and can be signed online, not just by Malaysian citizens at bit.do/mycatpetition

“Time and again Malaysia has seen Tiger traffickers and traders get away with a slap on the wrist, although the law allows for so much more. Why should they get away with lenient sentences, when Tigers get the death penalty?” said Dr Kae Kawanishi, Tiger biologist and MYCAT General Manager.
