United We Fight for the Survival of the Wild Cats

I was invited to give a keynote speech at the 40th Annual & Anniversary Conference of FCF (Feline Conservation Federation of America) on June 11th in Orlando, Florida. FCF is an organization whose members are private owners of exotic cats for conservation and education purposes:

It was good to be among kindred spirits and these cat owners are all devoted to their exotic friends, big or small and they are essential in educating the American public about wildlife and endearing them to animals. I was truly honoured to share our project’s experiences with them. I met some very interesting people and some very interesting cats there too. It was also interesting to know that some oppositions they face are similar to ours and come from the same sources.

Here are a few photos from the event.
