Panthera Africa is an environmentally friendly sanctuary for any captive bred big cats. These big cats will be protected and will prosper for the rest of their lives.
One of Panthera Africa’s main purposes is to be an educational platform where they create awareness about conditions the big cats face in captivity, and how animal welfare and enrichment play a vital role in giving them the best captive life possible. Panthera Africa are a true sanctuary where no cub petting, breeding or trading takes place. Panthera Africa are a blue print of how a non-profit sanctuary, focusing on animal welfare, can become self-sufficient, and they aim to change all breeding facilities into sustainable ethical projects.
