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.
