Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 220528991) - Geoffroy's cat - Awarded $5,000 on April 29, 2022
29-04-2022 - Geoffroy's cat

Geoffroy's cat is the most abundant wild cat in the Brazilian Pampa, where it coexists with margay, jaguarundi and pampas cat. Misinformation about species results in conflicts associated with retaliatory hunting and the transmission of diseases derived from free-range domestic cats/dogs. We have implemented strategies to mitigate these threats in the Seival locality, using Geoffroy's cat as a local emblematic species.

Long civil wars in South Sudan have affected peoples’ livelihoods immeasurably but led to gains in recovery of wildlife populations. Indiscriminate poaching for animal protein and income is changing the gains rapidly. The African golden cat (AGC), a new country record, is a victim of poaching as a by-catch. Our livestock seedbank project provides alternative livelihood option diverting communities from poaching to save the AGC.
