A Voice For The Wild Cats of the World
Black-footed cats are described as a naturally rare species. The World Conservation Union Red List shows them as Vulnerable, with a total effective population size of less than 10,000 and declining. They may be locally common in certain localities in South Africa, but being restricted to arid environments, they also occur at low densities.
According to the World Conservation Union rankings, Black-footed cats are more vulnerable than cheetahs and lions, due to their restricted geographical range and specific habitat requirements.
