Five Freedoms

Five Freedoms

“Five Freedoms” is a core concept in animal welfare, that we consider as most important at our (captive) project in S.A. It is a standard for the right to freedom for animals, born and kept in captivity, whether domestic or wild. According to the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, the […]

African wildcat, Milow, injured

We are often asked why we keep “domestic” cats in our project, referring to our African wild cats, with pure bloodline/genes.

Featured Project

Canned Hunting X Project

Many projects and organizations are trying to fight against Canned Hunting and for the lions (and other victims). Which approach will be effective remains to be seen but we all hope we will soon see the end of this horrible business.

Lion

Wild Cats World also stands for giving individual animals a better life. Each lion or wild cat we can rescue and give a better life whether in the wild or in captivity is one. Madame X recognized our true passion and devotion and asked us to help her with her amazing project. Tonight we will publish a personal word and explanation by Madame X about the lions we so far managed to rescue (5 in total), the reason for the project, and the way we handle it together or separately.
