Leopard Lady lives with wild cats by Hannah Stevens

Leopard Lady lives with wild cats by Hannah Stevens

For this conservationist, there is only one way to start her day – by hanging out with leopards. Babette De Jonge, 50, founded Wild Cats World in 2011 to help conserve endangered big cats, such as leopards and African wild cats. Based in Kirkwood, South Africa, the sanctuary is home to four leopards, and one cub, cheetahs, servals, caracals, African wildcats, Africa’s smallest cat – the black-footed cat and a group of 8 feral cats. By building up a mutual respect with the leopards – who were rescued from exploitation – Babette has been able to work hands on with […]

Wild Cats World Leopard Conservation Project; so far…..

Wild Cats World Leopard Conservation Project; so far…..

A life dedicated to leopards – being tolerated close to them in every stage of their life. Babette de Jonge (Founder/CEO Wild Cats World/Wild Cats Magazine) keeps on investing in what’s best for them, backed up by her life partner and 2 great caretakers, taking care of the wild cats in S.A. when Babette (and partner) cannot be present. Focus is now mainly on the African leopard (Panthera pardus pardus) since phase I started of a release program, for youngsters Olive, Solo, Beau & Bahati. Babette has an unbreakable bond with the leopards, started from the rescue of 4 adult […]

ULTIMATE LOVE & CARE? ULTIMATE TRANSPARENCY? ULTIMATE ETHICAL?

ULTIMATE LOVE & CARE? ULTIMATE TRANSPARENCY? ULTIMATE ETHICAL?

We can say fully YES to this. Just for the many people who contact us regularly, how they can start a facility, how they can keep big or wild cats, if we want to sponsor meat for their cats? Just for the ones, who will always be there, having a say…..here’s something to realize, and yes please do compare with all other “ethical” projects. And please think twice before starting with a facility, or with big/wild cats, as honestly after reading this? Do you love the cats as much as we do? Willing to sacrifice everything? With our relatively small […]

TO TRULY LOVE IS BEING ABLE LETTING THEM GO….WILD

Here’s the first pictures of the amazing leopards Olive, Beau, Bahati and Solo in their new huge camp, Phase I of their re-wilding programme, though the people involved instantly saw the wild already is truly in them. The four young leopards were born in our facility, with the sole purpose of being released, and it is only because of Eastern Cape Officials not granting permits to the Private Game Reserves to release (our) leopards, uncastrated that is, this process did take longer than expected. A few “sanctuaries” were contacted but were as expected not interested in true leopard conservation or […]

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.

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.
