Big cats rescued from overcrowded private zoo in Mexico

Finally… I think all of you know how Wild Cats World participated in a rescue operation from this zoo years back. Well, we took action to be able to rescue the cats from this awful place, but law decided otherwise back then. Today, almost 3 years further, we received this great news from “partner in crime” camera specialist Karla Munguia who did a great docu about her visits to this place, trying to pursue the owner to allow the cats to be rescued. We offered a safe haven at Wild Cats World then and we still do now. Fingers crossed all goes well in this rescue operation

More than 100 animals have been rescued from an overcrowded private zoo in Mexico.
Mexican environmental officials raided the zoo, which is owned by a conservative congressman, after complaints from visitors.

They found overcrowded and cramped cages piled on top of each other and unsafe conditions for visitors.

Among the animals rescued were lions, tigers, jaguars, pumas, bears, buffalos and camels.

Merry x-mas and a happy new year

kerst2014

The end of 2014 is coming near, the start of a brand new year, 2015, almost a fact. It’s an opportunity for all of us, to grab the moment and express our gratitude to all dear Wild Cats World supporters, the (symbolic) adoptionparents of our beloved ambassadorcats, sponsors of WCW projects, Madame X, our S.A. partners, the volunteers and caretakers and anyone showing their interest, in word and deed, to our Wild Cats World non-profit foundation, and our ambassadorcats in the S.A. “Spotted Cats Conservation” & “Black footed cat conservation” projects. We are grateful for the successful year we are about to finish, and we are looking forward to a bright future in which we continue fighting for the welfare and conservation of all wild catspecies. Thank you so much  and hopefully we can count on your incredible support, thru good and bad times, again.
Have a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic, healthy New Year!

Phoenix Four Leopard Re-wilding

The four young leopards born and raised (by their mothers/parents) at Wild Cats World have been successfully relocated to a huge re-wilding (phase I) camp in Mpumalanga Province, where lots of rehabilitation and releasing of leopards already had been done. Happy to say Olive, Solo, Beau & Bahati are settling in nicely, but we didn’t expect anything else of a highly adaptable species like the leopard. For the first re-wilding they will stay here, and the next step will be relocation to a huge boma in the National Park en Private Game Reserves (non-hunting) that showed interest in them already.
