Phantom Cat of the Chaparral


This 30 minute documentary highlights the important research and partnerships in place to ensure the recovery of the endangered ocelot. Biologists and landowners talk about tracking the cats, protecting and restoring ocelot habitat, the importance of partnerships, and what the public can do to help in the recovery of the species. Thank you to Richard Moore of Richard Moore Outdoors for creating this important and unique documentary and for letting the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service share it with you. And thanks to the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute for their important contributions to ocelot recovery and to the many private landowners whose critical work on private lands has helped keep ocelots on the Texas landscape.
