Big Cat Rescue is one of the world's largest accredited sanctuaries for big cats and a leading advocate to end big cat abuse. Students will learn about day-to-day operations at the sanctuary, be introduced to the 12 species of cats that call Big Cat Rescue home, and find out about the issues that threaten wild cats both in nature and in captivity. Best of all, everyone will learn simple actions they can take to help big cats and end big cat abuse.
The presentation includes entertaining videos, sounds, and fun photos of our cats. All abuse topics and discussions of threats to wild cats are catered to the age group. The presentation does not contain any graphic or disturbing images.
