Wild Cats World collaborates with and/or supports many organisations financially and by sharing knowledge. Most of the programs focused on the species in the wild, but our aim is also to support captive bred species, to give them the best welfare in our own sanctuary/conservationproject (S.A.) or in fellow programs. Here we just name a few.

Madame X

Not a real partner but for sure a highly respected associate in our mutual work against Canned Hunting!

“One should never start a partnership!” she told me (Babette) when meeting up for the first time, and in fact she is right. To co-operate is very essential though. Madame X is a lady we hope to meet many more of. Who is solely working for the lions (and soon hopefully also cheetahs), to rescue them from Canned Hunting, without wanting any fame or fortune herself. We respect her wishes not to reveal her name and location, as she truly is a celeb, but we are very honoured she asked Babette de Jonge & Wild Cats World to represent and help her in this wonderful project. The rescued lions (so far) have a safe and happy life on private property, 100 HA and (soon) more.

Anton Buijen van Weelden

Co-owner in the S.A. conservation project and sanctuary (Spotted Cats Conservation). To have the same passion, vision, mission and no arguments about financial matters or keeping credits where they belong, is very rare, but truly essential in a partnership. How lucky to have one  partnership like this for Wild Cats World, apart from many wonderful associations worldwide, what is keeping WCW going, with the best for the cats in mind anytime!!!!

Richard Daniell

Wild Cats World started a sanctuary/conservation project on the Daniell (Cheetah) farm and continuously invests a lot (as for funds, care and time) in the running projects as for the African native species: African wildcats, Black-footed cats, Caracals, Cheetahs, Servals, and not to forget the huge Leopard conservation project and ‘experiment” how to keep leopards the best way in captivity, as a group (WCW Leopard Pride). We are happy being allowed to do these projects, and home our ambassadors of the various species, on the land of mr. Richard Daniell, Eastern Cape, South Africa for which we like to express our gratitude. Some of our Wild Cats World ambassadors (leopards, caracals) can be witnessed during the Daniell Cheetah daily (educational) tours.

Wanicare Foundation

The Wanicare foundation, Indonesia, asked Wild Cats World for help in their plead to release two Javan leopards back into their natural habitat and start an education- and awareness project, to help the human-leopardconflicts at ground level in order to save the already critically endangered Javan leopardspecies. This non-governmental and non-profit organisation runs entirely on volunteers and donations. The purpose is to prevent wild animals trade and to release animals back to their natural habitat. The mission is to protect wildlife by offering Wildlife rescue centers and related projects complete support in their work by giving personal attention and help to these programs by assisting with PR, funding, education, medical help and other needs the project requires.

The foundation was founded in 2009 and initially focused on supporting the animal rescue project of Cikananga Wildlife Center, West Java, Indonesia. Wanicare achieved much in the last couple of years and prepares for an increase and further development in the coming years. We will keep on supporting the animal rescue project of Cikananga Wildlife Center but the Wanicare foundation also wants to focus on helping other animal projects, rescue centers, and other projects related to nature conservation.

Wanicare Foundation and Wild Cats World work together in the “Javan Leopard Release Program”.

Jane Goodall Institute Nepal (JGI-Nepal)

The JGI-Institute Nepal sent a proposal to Wild Cats World to request association in the project “Resolving the human-leopard conflict in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal”. As part of the huge leopard conservation project WCW already started, this association was more than welcome. The proposed project seeks to remediate the conflict by man and leopard by providing an immediate and dependable response team for handling an (near) attack, educating the public on leopards engaging public officials with political influence, and providing a toll-free hotline and resource regarding all issues and concerns regarding the leopards within the Kathmandu Valley. Apart from this a huge education-and awareness project benefiting the Nepal leopard.

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.
