From David Attenborough documentaries to The Lion King, exotic nature reserves to the pets in our own homes, the Animal Kingdom is a place of constant fascination and inspiration for us. Every year we discover more and more species of creature we share our planet with, but at the same time an increasing number of animals are under threat from global warming, pollution, deforestation and other challenges.
A sleek jaguar is the star of our newest Wild Thing, Born With Cattitude, but this beautiful animal and other big cats are increasingly in danger of extinction.
Set in the heart of the English countryside, The Big Cat Sanctuary provides a peaceful home for over 50 endangered big cats as well as a specialised centre of research to improve our knowledge of the majestic creatures they house. Experts in the breeding of big cats, the Sanctuary is helping to ensure the survival of these magnificent animals through their work.
The initiatives undertaken at The Big Cat Sanctuary are vital to saving some of the most endangered and iconic species on the planet from extinction. There are various projects which include co-ordinated breeding, contributions to frontline conservation strategies and the welfare of the sanctuary’s resident cats, who are not only ambassadors of their wild cousins, but also play an active role in securing a future for all wildlife and our natural world.
The Big Cat Sanctuary will be receiving 5% of profits from sales of Wild Things own big cat, the new jaguar design Born With Cattitude. Born With Cattitude was inspired by The Big Cat Sanctuary’s own sassy jaguar, Maya, who recently stole hearts in the BBC documentary series Big Cats About the House.
