You can help us save Armenia's leopard

Saving Armenia's Leopard - a project to conserve habitat for the endangered Caucasian Leopard in Armenia - has received more than 5,000 votes in an online poll organised by the European Outdoor Conservation Association. This puts the project in the lead but, with six more days of voting until the poll closes on 31 March 2014, we are not complacent. The project with the most votes will win a grant of €30,000 (£25,000), which will make a real difference to Caucasian Leopard conservation in Armenia.


Please register your vote before 31 March!

Puma captured on camera-trap in Sierra Gorda

Many reserves supported by WLT are home to big cats, but sightings of them are rare and always a cause for celebration. In late February, a camera-trap in La Tinaja reserve in Mexico’s Sierra Gorda recorded a puma (pictured left). The camera-trap was monitored by Abel Reséndiz, a reserve ranger employed by Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda, with funding from WLT's Keepers of the Wild appeal. In 2014, members of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) are raising funds to purchase 100 acres (40 hectares) of at risk land in Sierra Gorda. Donations to BIAZA Buy an Acre are already rolling in, including £1,000 just received from Paradise Wildlife Park.
