If you would like to become one of our fundraisers or activists, we would love to hear from you! Perhaps you would like to arrange a single event or several small events over the year! No matter how big or small, we always welcome support from our friends.

From time to time we arrange events and ask our supporters to become involved. For example hosting a tea party for your friends on International Tiger Day. We’ve had one of our activists cycle 4,000 km on a bike to raise funds, another hosted a Zumba fitness class and another activist arranged a dinner party. All we ask is that you have fun and represent the facts of the work we do!

If you would like to get involved, please send us an email to with your details.

Remember every mention helps! Tell your friends! Tell a stranger! Let’s spread the awareness about the big cat industry and ask everyone to support only ethical big cat sanctuaries – where no trading, interaction, or breeding takes place. Let’s all make conscious choices that supports both nature, animals and humanity as a whole, and in that way ensure a future for the next generations!
