Ambassador Mick – serval (R.I.P.)

June 2nd 2015 we were happy to welcome our new male serval (Leptailurus serval) ambassador: Mick! Mick was born at Honingkranz (Karoo Cat Research i.a.w. Cat Conservation Trust) 19 February 2013 as the last born in a litter of four kittens, which is exceptionally large for a serval mother, especially for a first-time mom. Mick is and will always be relatively small for a male serval, why he couldn’t be released in the wild like his sibblings. Hopefully his offspring can be released again. Mick will be together with (DCP) female Spirit, also a pretty wild female, as in motherraised without human interference.
Mick’s Mother – L.s. Nala, MCPGR, wild born, Eastern Cape

Mick’s father   –  L.s. Arno, wild born, Transvaal

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.
