The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is one of the world’s leaders in small cat conservation through our research efforts at CREW, breeding programs in the Cat House, education initiatives with small felids and financial support for in situ projects. The Cincinnati Zoo is the only AZA-accredited institution that participates in all five Species Survival Plans (SSPs) established for small cats, and currently houses more small cat species (13 total) than any other public zoo in North America. Explore our web pages to educate yourself about the extraordinary world of small cats and some of the ongoing efforts of CREW to broaden basic knowledge of small cat biology, connect captive and wild cat populations and conserve these imperiled small felids in their natural environment.
