Are there any large cat species that are not endangered?

    According to the IUCN’s red list of endangered species, yes there are a few species not endangered. Sadly, almost across the board, all big cat species populations are declining. Of all the species (not including subspecies) the lion, jaguar, leopard, cheetah, and cougar have managed to avoid becoming endangered species. The cougar seems to be thriving the most as it classified under the “least concern”. “Near threatened” is the next class below it and within that range lies jaguars and leopards, while lions and cheetahs are both listed as “vulnerable”. The tiger and snow leopard are the only two technically endangered. Just because most of these big cats are not on the endangered species list it does not mean that they are not struggling for the survival of their species.
