Mission Statement

"To ensure the viability, diversity, and integrity of the world’s threatened, endangered, and declining native carnivore populations and communities [Order Carnivora] and their prey; mitigate threats to their future survival; and restore their part to the healthy functioning and integrity of the planet’s ecosystems"


S.P.E.C.I.E.S., the Society for the Preservation of Endangered Carnivores and their International Ecological Study, is committed to the development and implementation of holistic, integrative and impactful projects and activities to further the conservation of the world’s carnivores. Our goals and objectives are best achieved through the integration of diverse elements where and when needed, including: innovative science and research, education through mentorship and outreach, building institutional capacity, developing and empowering local communities, incorporating cultural perspectives and contexts, cultivating community leadership, technological and socio-economic innovations, international markets, conservation psychology and social marketing, policy development, and long-term strategic planning. We believe that the conservation restoration of many wild places and big landscapes begins and ends with its carnivore communities, and we aim to integrate the needs of people and carnivores for a sustainable future.
