NEWSLINK: Glenn Close is hoping to use her fame to save big cats

The 70-year-old actress was recently named as the co-chair of Panthera’s Conservation Council, which seeks to protect the world’s 40 wild cat species and their ecosystems, and Close is hoping her celebrity status will help to shine a light on the issue.

She said: “The biggest threat to big cats is the human population.

“What naturalists and conservationists have to figure out is given that the human population is growing, and will continue to grow, how do these two populations exist together? Because obviously the panthera population, they’re the vulnerable ones.”
