Canned Hunting -X- Project still going strong

Glad to inform you all that the Canned Hunting Project by Madame X supported by us in Wild Cats World is still going strong. The purchase of 100 HA of land in Europe and the relocation of already 7 lions destined for the ugly Canned Hunting business in S.A. was already a fact in 2014.

F1030014Today Madame X managed to pursuade one of the “bad guys” to give up another male lion who was about to be sold, not for the right reasons. The end of a life full of cuddling, and interaction for big money with humans all day. The lion will be welcomed by his new Pride and a proud Madame X. This year we will pay another visit to this magical place and if approved of by Madame X we will publish some more pictures of the fortunate lions (so far..) and all the space they
have now.

Big cats rescued from overcrowded private zoo in Mexico

Finally… I think all of you know how Wild Cats World participated in a rescue operation from this zoo years back. Well, we took action to be able to rescue the cats from this awful place, but law decided otherwise back then. Today, almost 3 years further, we received this great news from “partner in crime” camera specialist Karla Munguia who did a great docu about her visits to this place, trying to pursue the owner to allow the cats to be rescued. We offered a safe haven at Wild Cats World then and we still do now. Fingers crossed all goes well in this rescue operation

More than 100 animals have been rescued from an overcrowded private zoo in Mexico.
Mexican environmental officials raided the zoo, which is owned by a conservative congressman, after complaints from visitors.

They found overcrowded and cramped cages piled on top of each other and unsafe conditions for visitors.

Among the animals rescued were lions, tigers, jaguars, pumas, bears, buffalos and camels.

WCW Leopard Conservation

When Babette de Jonge started her non-profit foundation Wild Cats World in June 2010, she already had her mind set on starting a special leopard project. There are lots of cheetah, tiger and even lion conservationprojects, creating awareness for the bad situation of these species in the wild, but somehow people always seem to have the strange and wrong idea that the leopard numbers are still save. Even though there never really was a leopard census, neither in Africa, nor in Asia. Also leopards are being killed in both countries on a daily basis. In India up till 2011 there were 356 leopards killed in 365 days, but in 2012 these numbers seem to be increasing.
