SAVE THE MANUL: INITIAL STEP Finished

Project results:

The cat in a steppe: what is known about Pallas cat status in Russia? ››

Pallas' cat is a denizen of the steppes, one of the areas in Eurasia most heavily transormed by man. It is a rare species of cats, and exact details concerning the status of its populations in Russia and its bordering territories are unclear. This project aims to support a group of volunteers concerned with studying and preserving Pallas' cat that are working to evaluate the current condition and growth dynamics of Pallas' cat population, as well as to create and maintain a dedicated web-resource and keep mass media and governmental bodies responsible for preservation of rare species abreast of the situation. Thus, an informational and organizational basis for a long-term program to study and preserve Pallas' cat in Russia and Kazakhstan will be laid.
