Evan had an opportunity to speak to Luke Dollar today at National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative. He shared with us the latest map of where National Geographic is putting the Big Cats Initiative money to work. In addition to Africa, they now have a grantee based in China doing work for the Snow Leopard. The typical grantee receives $25,000 to $30,000. Our fundraising event on September 18, 2012 brought in close to $30,000 so in essence we have been able to fund a grantee! Evan and I plan on traveling to DC later this month to meet with National Geographic and some of their grantees – very exciting! Will keep you posted.
