They are powerful, we view them with awe and respect, we may fear them, but above all we are seduced by their beauty. All are in danger – mostly due to habitat loss, poaching and persecution. Most now inhabit a tiny fraction of their original range and many are confined to national parks and reserves. The issue also encompasses the 2013 SEPAC theme of wildlife represented by the tiger stamp.Both Big Cats and the Journey Through Africa issues showcase the work of the CITIES animal protection organization.
