Ambassadors Lyon & Zoë

Our Pallas Cat Conservation Project is supporting new partner Lyon Zoo, France, raising funds for the PICA project also aiming to support the resident male and female in the Zoo, creating a great new home (enclosure)  in the hope they are going to breed successfully, very essential for the species!

To help us with this Lyon Zoo gave us permission to find (symbolic) adoption parents for the male or female (or both) in order to get funds in for the essential Pallas Cat Conservation program, supporting the wild species.

So, do you want to help the Pallas Cat, as well as the lovely male and female, ambassadors of their species, in Lyon Zoo/France, then please (symbolically) adopt the male, female, or both. Here’s more info on them…
