New Global Alliance Commits $80 Million for wild cat conservation
WildCRU’s partners in wild cat conservation, Panthera, have announced their $200 million funding initiative for wild cats, with commitment of $80 million already in place from philanthropists from China, India, UEA and Panthera’s founders themselves, Dr Thomas Kaplan and Mrs Daphne Recanati Kaplan. Dr Kaplan was interviewed in Forbes earlier this week and the news is also featured in National Geographic. See Panthera’s website for the full press release.
WildCRU’s base, the Recanati-Kaplan Centre, is the home of the Recanati-Kaplan Centre Postgraduate Diploma in International Wildlife Conservation Practice, made possible by the generous support of the Recanati-Kaplan Foundation and Panthera, for which the closing date for 2015 applications is Friday 13th June.
