Ambassador Maurice – African wild cat

1-DSC02509Maurice is born at Wild Cats World, December 23rd 2015, one of two boys (Milow & Maurice) in the first litter of our (pure genes) African wild cats Louise & Max. He will stay at our project, since the African wild cats are very rare and endangered. As true ancestor of the domestic cats, also their biggest threat is the domestic cat, or feral cat. Due to the mating with domestic or feral cats, there’s more hybrid wild cats instead of a healthy bloodline as for African wild cats left in the wild these days. That’s why breeding with these cats is so essential.

1-IMG_3211We, as always, breed in a responsible way, and we aren’t a breeding programme as such, just want to contribute to the species, as much as we can. All the ambassadors at Wild Cats World will be assured of life-long care at our sanctuary and conservation/education project, Eastern Cape/South Africa.



Maurice loves the company of our female Sid, so both stay together as a couple, while mom Louise and daddy Max make a great couple too, who will hopefully contribute more to the survival of their species.

If you like to support the african wild cat, and our project? It is possible to do a (symbolic) adoption, essential for the work we do for the African wild cat, our ambassadors and the survival of their species in the wild.

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.
