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.

Pallas Cat Conservation

As announced on March 16, 2017 , the WCW Pallas Cat Conservation Project is become a reality since we signed the contract with the Zoo de Lyon.

I hear already people saying, but there are pallas cat at Zoo de Lyon. Wrong, they have 2 pallas cat but not visible from the pubic( infortunately) due to the fact that they are looking for fund to build a brand new enclosure.

The WCW Pallas cat Conservation Project could be split in 2 sub-projects:

Help and support Zoo de Lyon to raise funds for work related to the Pallas cat . Conservation in-situ and ex-situ.
The other one which is the most important one is to raise funds for the PICA project – Pallas’s cat International Conservation Alliance.
First of all , we would like to thank Zoo De lyon to enable us to use the picures of their pallas cat as our ambassador for our project.
Let’s talk about the PICA Project :
This project was launched in March 2016 by Nordens Ark Zoo, Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, Snow Leopard Triust and Fondation Segré.
