What to expect
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to care for the world’s most endangered cats? Now is your chance! Book a Ranger for the Day and you will experience what it is like to be a keeper at The Big Cat Sanctuary. Join one of our expert keepers and take part in many activities to help care for our cats.
Your morning duties may include:
- Preparing and delivering food to our cats
- Cleaning out enclosures
- Setting up different types of enrichment
After a morning of helping the keepers, you will enjoy lunch in our café, with a selection of sandwiches, crisps, fruit, and cake. Please make sure you let us know any dietary requirements when making your booking.
Your afternoon will then include a tour of the Sanctuary, and meeting all the residents. Our keepers will talk to you about our cats’ back stories and their species. You will also learn about how the Sanctuary supports conservation around the world. Whilst on your tour, you will also be able to hand feed a big cat, an unforgettable memory.
