The Feline Research Program is one of several programs funded by the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, a small non-profit organization hailing from Kingsville campus of Texas A&M University, which has been conducting research for over 35 years. Scientists in this program conduct ecological, behavioral, and genetic research on Felids across southern Texas and around the world in hopes to promote conservation efforts and encourage wild population recoveries. They have conducted many long-term studies, predicting population estimates and structures, providing habitat models, and determining genetic trends of mountain lions all across Texas.
