Why become a member

  • Welfare
    We endeavour to provide the most fulfilled life in captivity for all our resident cats, stimulating them both mentally and physically. Ensuring our cats receive excellent care, a varied diet as well as enrichment.
  • Breeding
    We are helping maintain breeding integrity of the most endangered felid species. Should it become viable, in the future cats bred in captivity may be used to supplement existing populations in the wild.
  • Education
    We believe that education is key to protecting endangered cats and that by bringing conservation awareness into schools and communities we can help to create a future not only for big cats but all wildlife and the ecosystems on which they depend.
  • Conservation
    We are a charity exclusively dedicated to the conservation of our planet’s wild cats. We are making partnerships and collaborating with frontline conservation organisations to fund and support holistic conservation initiatives.
