This newly online report (.pdf format) from the National Wildlife Federation takes a comprehensive look at wild cat species of the US and the major threats to their survival. The report indicates that "many of North America's cats are threatened or endangered; others have declining populations or face a more distant threat of local and regional elimination due to human development and other activities." Specific consideration is given to roads, habitat loss/ degradation and fragmentation, and working with private landowners, in addition to species reintroductions, conservation needs, and recommendations. The report targets the general public, but the complexity of the issues inherent to wild cat conservation serves as useful fodder for academics as well.
