Up-date WCW projects, August 2016

– Sanctuary/Educationproject/leopard-and blackfooted cat conservationproject S.A.: working on successful continuation to give the cats the best life possible & to create opportunities for wild cat enthusiasts & caretakers (to-be) to be able to see these cats close and work with them for a longer period of time. Working with ambassadors for their species (African wildcats, Black-footed cats, Caracals, Cheetahs, Leopards and Servals) already proved to be very successful.
– New sanctuary in Europe: we were offered to also start a sanctuary in Europe. For now we will freeze this opportunity as all currrent projects take too much of our time and investments as it is. But who knows in the future. for now we want to focus on keeping the wild cats in the wild, so one captive project is enough (hassle).
– Javan Leopard Release Programme – we had a meeting with our associate Willemijn from Wanicare Foundation/Chikananga Wildlife Rescue Center, who showed us the short-term and long-term plans in this essential programme and it looks very promising. The Javan leopard is very endangered, almost extinct, so urgent support is required. We also back up a better situation for the Sunda Clouded leopardcub at the Center. Plans were discussed for that too.
– Pallas Cat Conservation – currently a contract is signed with Lyon Zoo, our associate in this new Conservation Programme. Contact and responsible person of this project is Berengere Desmet, running it i.a.w. Babette de Jonge, for Wild Cats World.
– Canned Hunting -X- Project. By kind invitation of Madame X we paid a visit to the enormous piece of land she offered to the (so far) 8 lions rescued out of Canned Hunting (not by buying them but by negotiating to be more precisely, so a real rescue!) offering them 100 HA and more to live like the wild but protected. It was overwhelming to be able to witness this and we are so grateful for this wonderful person to do this for these lions and to offer us the chance to co-operate with her in this.

Black footed cats convervation project

WCW started this conservation project on the DCP farm in Spotted Cats Conservation, with three wild black-footed cats, Beauty, Blacky and Footy. All three cats were injured by traps and could not be released into the wild. They were given a great home as well as the necessary treatment by the vet.
In late 2013 we decided to relocate the cats to the Cat Conservation Trust (CCT) as part of a new working alliance that adds more knowledge and expertise to make the project even more successful. Also, our captive born female Diva could join Blacky & Beauty as a start of a breeding program with this very endangered species.
