The reason  is to prevent further losses of lives, which are almost inevitable. The reasons for the losses are as follows:

- deforestation (logging, legal and illegal) causing massive habitat loss

- poaching for fur for fashion industry

- panic killings (people feel threatened when they see a big cat)

- palm oil plantations deprive wild cats of their habitat

- kidnappings from nature to zoos and circuses (should be prohibited)

- kidnappings for illegal pets (should be prohibeted)

- global warming


These are some of the reasons behind the loss of endangered wild cats, and new threats arise almost weekly, as governments allow coal mining, oil drilling, tar sand piping, natural disasters cause environmental changes.

However, one of the biggest threats after humans is the global warming. The vegetation is already changing and with this change also the pry animals start to disapper or be replaced by something else, not suitable to the wild felines palate. We all can help to decrrease the global warming, but unfortunately it cannot be stopped, even if radical methods were used. The biggest cause is the CO2 emissions of fossil fuel, but the most surprising sourrce is factory farming. It helps to produce tons of methane monhtly, and the cost of producing beef is too high, if we think how much land could be used for fruit and vegetable production versus fodder production. Traffic emissions arre just a tiny part of pollutants.

Pesticedes are one reason particularly threatening the smaller wild felines, and particularly those whose habitats are near farmed areas or catch their pray from water. Rains and floods carry grat amounts of various toxins to the areas of e.g. fishing wild cats, whose habitat is mostly swamp lands in delta reaeas and in marhes inland. And quite often the marshes are dried for grain production. That narrowes down the wild felines habitats even more. 

Our world is changing fast, but we could be able to guarantee the protection of all these endangered felines and help to preserve and conserve them for the future generation.
