National Geographic is seeking applications for field-based, action-oriented, and direct conservation efforts to halt the decline of big cats.

BCI conducted an evidence-based analysis to assess big cat conservation in Africa, identify funding gaps, and determine a focused engagement strategy for lion conservation funding (Jacobson and Riggio, 2018).
