IBCA Launch: Global Big Cat Conservation Initiative



The International Big Cat Alliance (IBCA) was officially launched on April 9, 2023, in Mysuru, Karnataka. This significant event, marking the 50th anniversary of Project Tiger, signifies a global leap in the conservation efforts for big cats. The alliance aims to unite 97 range countries in a concerted effort to protect seven key big cat species: the Tiger, Lion, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Cheetah, Jaguar, and Puma.

Objectives and Impact of the IBCA

The primary purpose of the IBCA is to enhance conservation measures for these majestic creatures and their habitats. By fostering global cooperation, sharing knowledge and best practices, supporting inter-governmental platforms, and aiding recovery efforts, the IBCA seeks to ensure the survival and flourishing of these big cats in their natural habitats.

The conservation of big cats is pivotal for the environment and local communities. These apex predators play a crucial role in maintaining the health and balance of ecosystems. Protecting them and their habitats contributes to climate change adaptation, secures water and food sources, and supports the livelihoods of forest communities. Furthermore, the existence and well-being of big cats symbolize sustainable development and livelihood security, emphasizing the importance of environmental resilience, combating climate change, and ensuring that natural ecosystems remain at the heart of economic and development strategies.

Moving Forward

Following its launch, the IBCA's next steps involve solidifying the operational modalities to ensure the initiative's momentum is maintained and that all participating countries remain engaged and supported in their conservation efforts. The alliance represents a comprehensive approach to conservation that not only focuses on the big cats themselves but also on the broader environmental and community benefits that come from preserving these species and their ecosystems.

The IBCA's establishment marks a historic moment in conservation, offering hope and a framework for the protection of big cats worldwide. Through international cooperation and shared commitment, the alliance aims to achieve lasting impacts on global conservation efforts, ensuring a secure future for big cats and the ecosystems they 
inhabit.
