Paola Bouley is on call as a first responder for lions in Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique. Rangers in eastern Russia are working tirelessly to protect the Ussuriskii State Nature Reserve, which is under threat from logging and poaching. Almost every obstacle surrounding big cat conservation in Africa is symptomatic of human population growth and the conversion of rangeland to reduce poverty.
By Jeremy Swanson On this World Wildlife Day, we reflect on the past, look at the present, and talk about our dreams for the future, of lions and their roars in Tanzania and East Africa.
As Beverly and I sit in the darkness in our camp in Duba in Botswana, we can see a shape out in the tall grass not far away. People that don’t live in Africa tend to learn about wildlife conservation in easy-to-understand terminology. In June 2003 we followed a leopard to a fallen tree and, after a while, noticed a tiny movement in the branches.
I’m thrilled to share that Wyoming legislature voted yesterday in favor of science and to protect the balance of nature on which our state so deeply depends. This January, a bill called HB0012 was introduced in the Wyoming legislature that, if passed, would allow any person with a valid hunting license to kill a mountain lion using a trap or snare. Bosawas Biosphere Reserve in northeastern Nicaragua constitutes one of the last forested strongholds where it is possible to find all the medium and large mammal species that originally occurred along the entire length of Mesoamerica’s Caribbean region. But despite the plenitude of fauna and flora in the core areas of Bosawas, the reserve faces serious threats to its long-term survival, including deforestation of natural forest areas for cattle ranching and unsustainable levels of wildlife hunting. We'll look for answers and post them here, along with regular updates about the science and conservation status of felids. National Geographic supports scientific research of lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, and other big cats with a view to finding viable ways to protect them in their natural habitat. More than two miles down, the ghostly bow of the Titanic emerges from the darkness on a dive by explorer and filmmaker James Cameron in 2001.
With her rudder cleaving the sand and two propeller blades peeking from the murk, Titanic’s mangled stern rests on the abyssal plain, 1,970 feet south of the more photographed bow. The first complete views of the legendary wreckEthereal views of Titanic’s bow offer a comprehensiveness of detail never seen before. The first complete views of the legendary wreckTitanic’s battered stern is captured overhead here. This porthole is among more than 5,500 objects retrieved from the ocean floor around the wreck of the Titanic. A gentleman’s pocket watch in a sterling silver case may have been set to New York time in anticipation of a safe arrival.

Investigate the ship’s remains and its contents sprawled across a thousand acres of gently sloping seafloor. By Kitson Jazynka In honor of International Polar Bear Day, National Geographic spoke with Steven Amstrup, who has been studying polar bears in the wild for 35 years. Renowned polar explorer Borge Ousland has had more than his share of run-ins with polar bears. By Xander Zellner for National Geographic Polar Bear Watch A recent study found that greenhouse gas emissions remain the number one threat posed to polar bears. By Kitson Jazynka for National Geographic Polar Bear Watch When you’re on an expedition in the Arctic, National Geographic Explorer Paul Rose says, you should always be prepared for polar bears. Despite Arctic marine mammals being icons of climate change, little is known about their populations across the Arctic. By Emily Shenk National Geographic Imagine you’ve drawn a line across a jigsaw puzzle, and you’re following that line from beginning to end. It’s the first-ever glimpse of life on Arctic sea ice through the eyes of a polar bear. In the Arctic Circle, grizzlies roam throughout the Ni’iinlii Njik (Fishing Branch) Territorial Park in the Canadian Yukon.
Munich’s Hellabrunn Zoo catches twin cubs opening their eyes—the first such video ever recorded.
Paul Nicklen, a wildlife photographer for National Geographic, witnesses a male polar bear attempting to mate with a female in Svalbard, Norway.
Polar bears are an icon of the Arctic realm and an indicator of changes taking place there and globally. On Thin IceThe Arctic is warming so fast that by 2050 it may be largely ice free in summer. National Geographic VideoJoin photographer Florian Schulz as he seeks to capture a dramatic image of a polar bear. She is a National Geographic Big Cats Initiative grantee and the director and co-founder of Projecto Leoes da Gorongosa.
This nature sanctuary or Zapovednik is home to some of the last remaining Siberian tigers in the region.
On a slightly contrarian note, Africa’s surge of human inhabitants is actually good news—at least insofar as the state of the human condition is concerned. And somewhere in the shadows of a winter dusk that falls across towns in northern New England, they’re watching.

But safeguarding animal species like lions is often more complex than mainstream media sound bites would have their audiences believe. HB0012, which would have allowed the trapping of mountain lions in Wyoming, failed to pass the House on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at 2:23 pm. As many as 200 lions may survive across the ecosystem between this part of Ethiopia and the adjacent national park in Sudan, according to the expedition’s analysis. There are 38 species of felids, ranging from the seven-pound tabby in your lap to 500-pound Siberian tigers—with cheetahs, leopards, ocelots, and other striped and spotted cats in between.
We'll also share National Geographic articles, videos, and behind-the-scenes features and keep you up to date on our Big Cats Initiative work to help big cats hang on in the wild.

The ship might have survived a head-on collision with an iceberg, but a sideswipe across her starboard side pierced too many of her watertight compartments.
It’s a good idea to have cooking pots ready to bang together, or a flare gun to discourage a bear from coming near. In a first ever global review of Arctic marine mammals, published last week in Conservation Biology, an international team of scientists provides a circumpolar range assessment. Photographing the animal was a mixture of luck and perseverance for photographer Peter Mather, who spent a month trying to capture an image of one in the Canadian Yukon. This 2,500-square-mile ecological reserve is home to a significant population of grizzly bears, as well as chum salmon, gray wolves, bald eagles, moose, and caribou. Over the past few years, non-profit groups, the national and international public, and the U.S. The deep green eyes of the Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) have the advantage in the region’s dark spruce-fir, or boreal, forest. Finally, morsels of frozen, skinned seal float into view as the hunter gnaws down on her meal.
Fish & Wildlife Service itself, have been rallying the government to protect lions under the Endangered Species Act. In this new film we follow two cheetah mothers, both with varying fortunes, as they struggle to raise their families against all the odds.
