Big cat sanctuary

These pictures were taken on a recent visit to "The Wildlife Heritage Foundation" Big cat sanctuary & breeding center in Kent.

Endangered in the wild, these noble animals are protected & bred in captivity with the hope that one day when things are safe for them, their offsprings offspring may be released back into the wild.

The center is not open to general public, but it is possible to organise big cat encounters or take part in other events through the website...

"Wildlife Heritage Foundation - W H F is a UK based charity working hard to ensure that the big cat species of the world are protected from extinction. Based in Kent UK we are an active partner in the European Endangered Species Breeding Programmes (EEP), as well as setting up education programmes for the people that share the habitats of these wonderful cats. The WHF is also raising awareness and funding for big cat projects around the world."
