Links to some sites with information on big cats and natural history. I'll be adding more over time as I find them.
Big Cats Online
Rated as a 'Yahoo Cool Site' for good reason! Beautifully done page with a lot of info and links to both biological and conservation sites
Sierra Endangered Cat Haven
A cat preservation park dedicated to promoting the education and conservation of different species of cats, with a focus on the jaguar.
The Lion Research Center at the University of Minnesota
Nice site with lots more information on lion behavior, as well as reintroduction and conservation projects.
Asiatic Lion Information Centre
Information about the rare Asian subspecies of lion, Panthera leo persica. Includes information on a breeding program as well as lots of pictures of Asiatic lions.
The Kingdom of Lions
A rather interesting site in English and Dutch. Not big on graphics, but it has a lot of information. A pretty unique site too; all the information is written with the lion as the narrator.
King of Beasts
Site with information on lion resources such as books, videos, and writings. Also has a Man Eaters of Tsavo page.
Artist who draws names in the mane and tail of a lion. Includes post cards and a template to draw your own lion.
The Rocky and Nala Fan Club
A site about two special Barbary lions, written form the lion's point of view.
The Barbary Lion Information Page
Information about this nearly extinct subspecies of lion.
Tiger Information Center
Really nice site with lots of information and links relating to tigers
National Geographic's Cyber Tiger
Interesting interactive site where you play a zookeeper taking care of a tiger.
Canadian site for a foundation dedicated to preserving tigers. Also has images and links related to tigers.
The Cheetah Spot
Site for much more information on cheetahs than I have. It's a good site to visit if cheetahs are your favorite among the big cats.
Evolution WWW Virtual Library
Maintained at Harvard. Standard low graphics INDEX format but lots of links to good resources about all aspects of evolution.
The Field Museum of Natural History homepage
For anyone who's visited before and not seen it in about a half a year, this site has greatly improved. A great natural history museum and a great site. For anyone who's never visited the museum, I'd recommend it if you get the chance!
The American Museum of Natural History
The largest museum in the world, and a really good evolution exhibit with features that allow you to trace a lineage through it's divergences from related taxa. Unfortunately I've only been able to visit it on line...
The Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History
Here you'll find out about the Rancho La Brea site I've mentioned so often! Never been able to visit the museum in person yet, but from their site I get a pretty good impression of the fossil exhibits they have there.
Website with info about the famous zoo in New Orleans, home of another white tiger named Suri
Site for the largest metropolitan zoo in America in New York.
Lincoln Park Zoo
Chicago's zoo, home of cheetahs and a jaguar along with other big cats.
My hometown zoo. Many of the photos of lions and tigers are from the Detroit zoo (the white tiger and snow leopard are from a zoo outside Lansing Michigan).
The Leopard Son
Internet Movie Database entry on the Discovery channel's Feature length Documentary about a leopard growing up in the wild.
The Ghost and the Darkness
Internet Movie Database entry on the movie based on the Man-eaters of Tsavo.
The Leopard Son
The Discovery Channel's site on their documentary/movie.
Billed as 'the world's largest bookstore'. Not real specific to big cats or natural history, but if you're looking for resources this is a good place to find them at pretty reasonable prices.
Has a online information and schedules. Usually they have some articles on natural history or cats in the wild.
A search engine dedicated to pages with animals as the main focus
