Volunteering in Cikananga with Wanicare

Our associates (in the Javan Leopard Release Programme) on Java/Indonesia also badly need volunteers. We can recommend this strongly, as they rescue and release so many wild animals, we have to give them as much support as possible. Read on and join them whenever you can. https://www.facebook.com/notes/wanicare-foundation/volunteering-in-cikananga-with-wanicare/979132578869706

R.I.P. dear (serval) Mick

Today (14/06/2016) we sadly had to let our male serval Mick go. Yesterday he was diagnosed kidney failure. The vet gave a drip with fluids to see if he would start eating/drinking again, but sadly no. As we don’t want any (unnecessary) suffering for any of our ambassadors we had […]

The other side of the leopard

It is obvious that the leopardspecies still is far less understood,and misjudged, compared to all other species. In the wild they for sure are under threat, but also in captivity lots can be improved for the species. There’s so many studies, so-called facts or scientific documents about the leopard. To start another project is only adding when one does something completely different, trying to show the other side of the medal….So much more to the leopard as we found out already………..

When I (WCW founder/director, Babette de Jonge) saw leopards in zoos, sanctuaries or private projects, I was crying deep inside. This was one of the many reasons to start working with and for leopards, but also to not only focus on the wild (and natural habitat) of the species but also on what can be improved or learnt in captive situations. For sure the leopard isn’t going to be happy in a too small enclosure (length and hight), locked up alone (even though said to be solitary) or at times as couple or with cubs, with no enrichment and bad/irregular feeding; kept wild with no bond with the human caretaker(s). Also the other side isn’t improving their state of mind and happiness: to be cuddled and followed by humans all day, week, month, year……
