Protecting the Natural and Cultural Heritage of Eurasia

We envision a world with thriving and resilient ecosystems, where all peoples live sustainably, rooted in interwoven cultures, self-determination, and self-governance.

Every dog has its day, or so the expression goes, but so do cats! Arguably one of the lesser-known animal holidays (and one of several cat calendar observances) is International Pallas’s Cat Day, an educational and conservation-oriented holiday observed on April 23. Read on to learn more about the holiday’s honoree and support Pallas’s cat preservation.

HOW CAN YOU HELP THESE WILD CATS? To observe this cat’s holiday and to support long-term Pallas’s cat conservation efforts, we are raising funds toward our partner Manul Working Group (MWG) for their Adopt a Camera program.

Our Mission

To protect the interconnected web of wildlife on our planet, reverse losses of wildlife and habitats, and amplify the voices and concerns of Indigenous peoples and local communities across Eurasia.

Based in the United States, we seek to bridge the gap – knowledge, resources, expertise, and beyond – between “Western civilization” and Eurasian ecosystems and communities. In collaboration with other international nonprofits, we support and participate in activism to prevent or mitigate potentially destructive development that threaten ecosystems, communities, and biological diversity. Our partners are generally people and organizations in the local community, and we strive to maintain long-term relationships.
