Three quarters of the world’s wild cat species are about the size of a house cat or a bit larger.

In spite of the fact they make up the majority of the Felidae Family, most people are unaware of these tiny felines. Education and public awareness are major components of wildcat conservation, so we have compiled fact sheets on all wild cat species, broken down by continent:

Africa

Asia

Eurasia

North America

South America
