Royal Visit to The Big Cat Sanctuary

The Big Cat Sanctuary was most honoured to welcome HRH The Duke of Kent to the official opening of our new Jaguar Lodge, on Thursday 9th November 2017.

The Duke of Kent gained an insight into the work being carried out at the sanctuary – supporting our four pillars of ethos: Welfare, Breeding, Conservation and Education as well as a guided tour to see some of our incredible cats.

The Big Cat Sanctuary is a conservation organisation for wild cats which also offers sanctuary to retired and homeless cats and are proud to have recently launched an education programme within schools as well as being recognised as the Kent Animal Charity of the year with the Kent Charity Awards.

With the knowledge and dedication of Managing Director and Big Cat Expert Giles Clark and the team, the facility thrives in its ethos to give the animals a fulfilled quality of life in captivity – stimulating them both mentally and physically.

Giles said, β€œThe future holds exciting times for us – as we continue to strive to become a leading facility to support the conservation of wild cats around the world by continuing to develop our partnerships with other leading conservation and education organisations.”
