Wild Cats World for the leopards

The new huge Wild Cats World leopard project has started. Nothing, no one and for sure no Covid-19 will stop us from doing what we intended to from start, 10 years ago.
All progress will be up-dated on a regular basis on the facebook pages Friends of Wild Cats World and Wild Cats World leopard groups/pages.
Sponsors, true and positive followers as well as volunteers (past and present) can be part of this.

Wild Cats World is going strong

Even though it is a difficult and insecure time, we are happy to inform you that Wild Cats World as official sanctuary in South Africa is going strong. We are making huge steps and significant progress with a large new project, as always benefiting all cats in our care big time!
The WCW team is growing and more solid and reliable as ever before. The employees who are loyal to WCW will be secure of a great future in our organisation, which is growing slowly but surely.

Of course Covid-19 is hitting us hard too. We take our responsibility to the animals in our sanctuary as well as to the team of employers very serious. Their well-being is essential for us and we will provide the best in our power. Ever since we started our sanctuary in South Africa we of course support the South African economy and local businesses by spending lots of money. Sadly we have lost a lot of money due to corruption in SA too. We like to continue with our work for the endangered wild cats, big and small for a long time to come.

As non-profit organisation due to Covid-19 we have no income at all, other than the money earned in our jobs in the Netherlands. If you have a heart for the wild cats and our work, and you are looking for a charity cause to give a donation or sponsor a project or animal, please do contact us by e-mail, info@wildcatsmagazine.nl.

All sponsors will be able to follow us and the cats closely by becoming a member of our (closed) groups on Facebook, to which you will get an invitation. You will also be more than welcome to visit us in person to see for yourself that every single penny will be spend on the animals and the various ways to give them the best care possible.

We keep you up-dated. Thanks for following us!!!

Corona Virus and more……

While the Corona virus turned out to be a world wide threat and problem, causing all kinds of complications, we like to keep the positive spirit. Luckily we are in the position to continue what we have started recently and which will in the end give our projects, the species we are fighting for and working with, and all involved the long-awaited boost.

Volunteers who booked with us and aren’t able to take their flight to enjoy spending time @ Wild Cats World, we can always look for another period of time that will suit us both. Just e-mail us and we can take it from there. Same goes for volunteers who like to make a booking; best to get in touch first to see what the best option is.

We sympathize with all victims of the Corona virus and wish for you all to Keep Well!!

With all negativity there’s always some positivity. For the environment & wildlife the world-wide crisis comes as a blessing……Mother Earth seems to strike back big time and so far there’s nothing people could do to stop this.

Let’s work together, one for all instead of all for one, and let’s beat the crisis in a positive way. And just realise it is not people who rule the planet. Let’s stop destroying the earth and by doing so ourselves!

Up-date plans and projects

The year 2020 couldn’t have started better for us at Wild Cats World. We received the golden opportunity to continue making plans and to make dreams come true for all of us. All the cats, starting with the leopards, will surely thrive but also for all people involved it will be a huge improvement.

So after the first 10 years we are ready for a huge change. We decided not to say too much about our plans and the future just yet. A lot of work still needs to be done, so we take one step at a time and will also up-date you along the way.
At facebook we have daily ‘teasers’ leading to the big moment of truth. Apart from that, just keep watching this space. It might take a while until there’s more to tell, but believe us it is well worth the wait.

In the meantime we like to say thank you to all our true followers and supporters, believing in us all the way, and ignoring the negative “internet trolls” and “backstabbers” who have nothing better to do than spread lies, most of all under fake names.

Our plans will involve all: all the species and ambassadors, and all
at WCW or supporting WCW.

The book “Blood Conservation” is still part of the future plans, but first things first.

WCW feral cat operation II

We started the big scale WCW feral cat operation in Kirkwood, Eastern Cape, South Africa. When cat owners don’t take responsibility and welfare is starting to become an issue, we step in. Wild Cats World is there for all cats, big and small, tame, lesser tame and wild.

We did a one-time project for 9 other feral cats (the Gangsters) who are still meeting us twice a day for a meal and TLC. The 9th one turned up later and proved to be more a domestic cat and she now has a permanent home too.

With huge thanks for the offer of financial support from a few volunteers. We try to help as many as possible this time, to start with around 14. And preferably vaccination and removal of kittens on top of this. ❣️

Volunteering at Wild Cats World

Leopards

The main focus during your stay will be to learn everything about diet, husbandry, living conditions and hygiene practices in order to prevent diseases. You will learn all this while assisting the caretaker or owner giving the best care to African wildcats, Black-footed cats, Caracals, Cheetahs, Leopards, Servals and a group of feral cats.

BUT… we of course want to give education as well. We want our volunteers to leave knowing all important facts about all species you worked with.
Also about the lions of which we initiated the rescue of 10 animals from Canned Hunting, not in our care but safe and sound. So, we added this special item to the volunteering program, soon to start.

For more info write to info@wildcatsmagazine.nl

Availability from April 2020 and months after – this year until April 2020 we have no availability anymore: full house.

SOS LEOPARDS

The #1 project Wild Cats World currently supports is a leopard rescue of a badly injured wild male leopard. This fundraiser is to give him the essential medical care.

The injuries result from snares on a farm that have done a lot of damage. He is badly injured but is in good hands now. This project is in association with a Leopard Rescue, Rehab & Release program in the Mpumalanga district, South Africa.

Please, support us! Funds are badly needed. So far, all funding was provided for by the vet and the Rehab program. But if we want to continue this badly needed work, we need every penny we can get. See the link below.




It is also possible to donate by Paypal.
Email: info@wildcatsmagazine.nl

PLEASE HELP THIS LEOPARD!!!! DONATE & SHARE!!!

Welcome to African wildcat female Quilla

The newest addition to the WCW family is African wildcat female Quilla. Last Sunday (21st) she arrived and she settled in nicely. Of course the other wildcats were very curious to see their new neighbour and esp. Maurice (like it should be) was exited to see her from start and immediately started calling. Promising for the future. Luckily Quilla did start eating well right after her arrival so she is doing well. She is a pretty girl too as you can see, and like Louise she tends to stick out her tongue (to the photographer). More photos of her will follow later when she is completely at ease. Follow her and us on social media for the latest up-dates.



Wild Cats World sanctuary, South Africa, has been officially registered as a Non Profit Company by the South African Government.
