Corona Virus and more……

While the Corona virus turned out to be a world wide threat and problem, causing all kinds of complications, we like to keep the positive spirit. Luckily we are in the position to continue what we have started recently and which will in the end give our projects, the species we are fighting for and working with, and all involved the long-awaited boost. Volunteers who booked with us and aren’t able to take their flight to enjoy spending time @ Wild Cats World, we can always look for another period of time that will suit us both. Just e-mail us […]

Up-date plans and projects

Up-date plans and projects

The year 2020 couldn’t have started better for us at Wild Cats World. We received the golden opportunity to continue making plans and to make dreams come true for all of us. All the cats, starting with the leopards, will surely thrive but also for all people involved it will be a huge improvement. So after the first 10 years we are ready for a huge change. We decided not to say too much about our plans and the future just yet. A lot of work still needs to be done, so we take one step at a time and […]

WCW feral cat operation II

WCW feral cat operation II

We started the big scale WCW feral cat operation in Kirkwood, Eastern Cape, South Africa. When cat owners don’t take responsibility and welfare is starting to become an issue, we step in. Wild Cats World is there for all cats, big and small, tame, lesser tame and wild. We did a one-time project for 9 other feral cats (the Gangsters) who are still meeting us twice a day for a meal and TLC. The 9th one turned up later and proved to be more a domestic cat and she now has a permanent home too. With huge thanks for the […]

Merry X-Mas & Happy New Year

Merry X-Mas & Happy New Year

Team Wild Cats World and all wonderful wild cat ambassadors love to express our gratitude for your wonderful support throughout another year. A year with lots of difficulties to overcome, plans to make, changes taking place. Another year full of love and care for the resident wild cats and species in our sanctuary and conservation programs. What kept us most busy and still is: the fight for the African leopard. With the “disappearance” of our female Olive on her way to the wild, we discovered many shocking things which are huge threats to the wild leopards. So a courtcase and […]

Wild Cats vs abuse, trade, hunting and exploitation

Wild Cats vs abuse, trade, hunting and exploitation

Yes THIS (see photo!) is exactly what we think about all the animal abuse… exploitation, trade, bone and Hunting ‘industry’ in South Africa. Thanks to the best Leopard ambassadors we have been working for most of 2019 on a huge scale Investigation as for the mentioned before. Name and shame and revealing time soon… It is scary that everybody somehow and in some way is involved in this business. Foundations, welfare organisations, conservation… huge laugh, in fact the biggest threat to Wildlife as it appears now. Learnt so much past time… hard to describe. Yes the book will be there […]

Volunteering at Wild Cats World

Volunteering at Wild Cats World

The main focus during your stay will be to learn everything about diet, husbandry, living conditions and hygiene practices in order to prevent diseases. You will learn all this while assisting the caretaker or owner giving the best care to African wildcats, Black-footed cats, Caracals, Cheetahs, Leopards, Servals and a group of feral cats. BUT… we of course want to give education as well. We want our volunteers to leave knowing all important facts about all species you worked with. Also about the lions of which we initiated the rescue of 10 animals from Canned Hunting, not in our care […]

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 public (unfortunately) due to the fact that they are looking for funding 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.
