Volunteers Thomas and Lorraine

img_4702My name is Thomas and, just like my girlfriend Lorraine, I love animals, especially cats. After visiting twice South Africa and some of its beautiful reserves, we wanted a different experience. We knew the concept of volunteering and we thought that it might be a great way to be helpful to the animals while having the opportunity to get up close. WCW´s project seemed to fit perfectly with our expectations and ideals, so we decided to go there in August.p1030037

We shared a great couple of weeks with Sam, the caretaker, who was an awesome teacher to us !

p1030023It was a pleasure to work for this project because of the passionate people who carry it. It wasn’t boring at all, even collect the poo was funny ! We have seen the difficulty and the absolute necessity to preserve these species and we want to continue helping in any ways.

p1030029We are thinking every day about all the cats, big and small, we cared for during this period and we really miss them !!! We definitelly will come back in WCW, as soon as possible.

Thanks again Babette for this wonderful stay, our dream has come true !

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.
