The Andes and The Cat

The conservation of the Andean cat and its habitat

A common goal

The Andean Cat Alliance (Alianza Gato Andino, or AGA) is a multinational and interdisciplinary network, created in 1999 by conservation professionals from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru, to develop coordinated actions for the conservation of the species and its habitat throughout its range.

The Andean cat (Leopardus jacobita) is the most endangered feline in America and one of the most endangered and least known cats worldwide.


We contribute to the knowledge and conservation of the Andean cat and its habitat, through innovative strategies in research, conservation, community participation and support in the management of wild areas.



Our vision is the conservation and long-term protection of Andean cat populations and their habitat, in harmony with human communities.
