Big cats are among the most widely recognized and admired animals across the globe. However, today these charismatic predators are facing many and varied threats, which are mostly caused by human activities. Overall, their populations are declining at a disturbing rate due to loss of habitat and prey, conflicts with people, poaching and illegal trade. 

The Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival are pleased to join hands again to organize an international film festival, this time for the world’s big cats, to raise global awareness of the critical challenges facing these iconic species.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: January 5, 2018

 

Winners to be announced at a high-level event to coincide with the global launch of World Wildlife Day at UN Headquarters in NYC, on March 3, 2018.
