Sponsorships: Help Provide the Best Care for the small and/or big cats!
By sponsoring a small or big cat you are helping Wild Cats World to provide the very best care for all of the cats that call the sanctuary home. Sponsoring a cat by (symbolical) adoption or sponsoring a project (like the construction of camps: the bigger, the better!) is easy!!!!
The proceeds from the sponsorship program fund nutritionally balanced diets and vitamins, excellent daily care by experienced and loving caretakers, excellent veterinary care, flea/tics prevention, enrichment, support of the wild species.
For 25 euro (20 USD) a month or more you can be assured your favourite cat or species will get even better care than already is the case.
- Choose your favourite cat or species: African wildcats, Black-footed cats, Caracals, Cheetahs, Leopards and Servals. You can also support our feral cat project or Lion project.
- Make a monthly or yearly donation, or one-time donation sponsoring one project, like the construction of a huge camp.
- Write to firstname.lastname@example.org for more info about certain cats, species or projects.
On behalf of the cats we would like to thank you for deciding to join the Wild Cats World family by sponsoring a wild child or species.

Why the need for a ” World lions day”? Like most species, the lion is endangered and facing extinction.
On the map below, the habitat of African lions in 1920 is marked in red. In blue today’s habitat of lions is indicated. In just half a century humans succeeded in bringing lions to the brink of extinction. In Africa the numbers have been reduced from 200.000 to a mere 20.000 today. Of the remaining population, only 4000 are males… In the knowledge that only 10% of the males are dominant and thus reproducing for the next generation, you can see that the gene pool is extremely small and eventually will weaken the species.
We have to keep raising awareness for the numbers declining rapidly.
On World Lion’s Day (10/08/20) more than any other day, we have to share the message that The King is not going to survive, if we don’t act rapidly.
What we said all this time, the threat to healthy Leopard numbers is
severe. Leopard Conservation is essential, but how is it conducted in South Africa?
Apart from all mentioned, another serious threat is the capturing, keeping and killing of wild leopards in captivity with approval of all so-called conservation organisations. These also claim to protect the species but, as we found out, don’t take the threat seriously and take advantage of it for their own ego and income. And then they say no to healthy blood (for breeding) which merely shows how fucked up SA conservation is. We don’t want to jeopardize our good leopard genes any more until something is changing big time.
We are the only leopard conservation program in South Africa (run by Overseas people, what irony) who have just the best interest of the leopard and its survival at heart. Yet the country decides to ignore good intentions, but instead is choosing a road to extinction.
We will keep fighting for the leopard, but in a different way. The in-breeding goes for all species in the smaller areas like Private Game Reserves who these days are nothing more than a huge zoo. They rely on people to regulate numbers and breeding, so nothing is natural about it. Of course there are lots of the problems for cheetah and Lions. The “release and conservation” efforts are nothing more than a way to keep the exploit going.
