Helping The Big Cats!

Adopt A Big Cat ?

Another Grrreat Way to Help The Big Cats
Many of the zoos participating in breeding programmes run adoption schemes
where you can sponsor or 'buy' a share in an animal of your choice.
All of the money raised by these schemes is used to directly
support the welfare of the animals within the zoo.
When you adopt an animal you will usually recieve special
information and updates about 'your' animal
as well as being credited as an adopter at the zoo.
You may also recieve extra benefits when visiting the zoo.

Adopting a Big Cat is a great way to support the important role
the zoo`s breeding programme as in protecting
the future of the Big Cats.

Other Ways To Help Lions & Tigers?

Don’t purchase products containing palm oil. Tigers have lost over 90 percent of their historical range in the past 100 years to population growth and agricultural activities, reducing tiger populations to below 4,000 individuals. Palm oil plantations are a huge culprit every hour, an area the size of 300 football fields is lost to make way for cheap and profitable palm fields.

Reduce your paper consumption. Deforestation in Asia and South America for the production of paper products is a significant contributor to the loss of wild cat populations, including tigers. By reducing demand, you reduce the need to cut down vital habitat for these animals. It also contributes to the protection of other important species that rely on these forests to survive.

Never purchase illegal wildlife products, either at home or abroad. Many people view dead lions & tigers as extremely valuable, using every part of their bodies in some way. There is no science to back claims that lion, tiger or other animal parts have medicinal value, and lion and tigers suffer needlessly at the hands of poachers or in illegal tiger farms where they are bred for their parts.

Donate money to the cause. If you can’t commit to a monthly one, a one-off donation helps these majestic wild cats too!Finally, and most importantly – spread the word! Sharing facts, stats and personal thoughts about the issue helps bring it to people’s attention. The more people know about how vulnerable lions are, the higher the chances of them taking action.speak out in your area and social networks about what canned trophy hunting really is and how it impacts the survival of Africa’s lions.
