Welcome to the Recovering Texas Ocelots project page. We're glad you're here.
Over the next 1-to-2 years, we'll be updating this project page with news, updates and research reports as we thoroughly explore the feasibility of establishing a new population of ocelots to a portion of their historical range in Texas.
If you're interested in following along, bookmark this site and come back periodically for updates or sign up to receive our project updates directly to your inbox.
The nine project partners, including the Texas A&M University Natural Resources Institute, Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, Lindner Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife at the Cincinnati Zoo, East Foundation, the University of Tennessee Comparative and Experimental Medicine and The Center for Wildlife Health, Predator Conservation, A.C., Duquesne University, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, sat down to capture what questions local communities, organizations and agencies might have as we embark on this process. You can find those here.
