MIS­SION MEOW SAV­ING THE PALLAS’S CAT

First News - - Front Page -

THE Royal Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety in Scot­land is help­ing with work in Mon­go­lia to find out more about a very shy cat called the Pallas's cat.

Pallas’s cats are one of the least-stud­ied cats in the world. They are short, stocky cats, mainly grey/brown in colour with dark spots on the head and a dark-ringed tail which helps them to blend into their rocky and grass­lands habi­tats, which span from Iran in the west to China and Mon­go­lia in the east. RZSS has been work­ing with lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties as part of the Pallas's Cat In­ter­na­tional Con­ser­va­tion Al­liance to find out more about the cats and the threats they face in the wild. They also hope to raise aware­ness of the species.
