Please help me raise money for National Geographic's Big Cat Initiative. Cause an uproar today!

"Do we want to live in a world without lions in the wild? That is the choice we are facing." - NatGeo

Wild cats from around the world are facing extinction at an alarming rate. It is estimated that in 20 years most cat species will disappear - unless we start to make a change.

From lions in Kenya to snow leopards in the Himalaya, the big cats of the world need help. Lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, jaguars, and other top felines are quickly disappearing, all victims of habitat loss and degradation as well as conflicts with humans.

To address this critical situation, the National Geographic Society has 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.

Please help me campaign and raise money for this noteworthy cause. You can donate here on this site and all proceeds go DIRECTLY to the National Geographic Big Cats Initiative!

•Lions are down to perhaps 25,000 in the African wild, where 450,000 formerly roamed.
•Leopards are down to 50,000, from 750,000.
•Cheetahs number about 12,000, down from 45,000.
•Tigers number about 3,000 in the wild, down from 50,000 total. Perhaps only 1,200 breeding wild females exist.
•There are more tigers in captivity than in the wild.

THANK YOU! Any donation will help make a difference.
