Project: African wildcat Conservation. One to watch!!

Project: African wildcat Conservation. One to watch!!

We are often asked to co-operate in research or conservational projects or study ‘objects’ re. Conservation Ecology. Twané Bester focused on the African wildcat as her project to finish off her studies at University Pretoria, and requested to use some footage. Enjoy this video, starring a.o. our African wildcats Sid & Louise. The video was received well with a mark of 90% and Twané’s professor requested to use it as example for next year’s students. So well done! All attention for the small wildcatspecies is more than welcome!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfwrepCFcPc&t=10s

Second birth at our black-footed cat, parents Lilly & Spotty

Second birth at our black-footed cat, parents Lilly & Spotty

On the 26th of March 2018, our black-footed cat female Lilly gave birth to another kitten. The second birth of this season, which is very normal for black footed cats. In September 2017 she gave birth to Lady & Lucky, who are still doing well, and this new kitten seems to be a girl as well, though isn’t officially sexed yet. So far so good, and we are very happy, as the species is very rare and endangered, and very vulnerable to stress-related illnesses like kidney failure, why most of them die on young age. One of the essential conservation […]

WCW leopards doing great… going WILD

A first glimpse of Olive, Solo, Beau & Bahati, the four young leopards born and (mother)raised at Wild Cats World, who in March this year were relocated for a (soft) release…… Founder/CEO of WCW, Babette de Jonge, went to visit (search for….) them, and these are the moments captured of the first glimpse, to show best the confirmed news that they are doing great (as expected) and are showing the exact right wild behaviour already. Esp. Solo and Olive turned very elusive and preferred to hide away for the vehicle…. They are in same territory as a rehabilitated wild male […]

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 […]

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.
