Sponsor one of our Big Cats – and help continue vital work of the sanctuary for Big Cats no longer suitable for breeding programmes.  

Each of our cats has their own very special story and we open just a few times each year to share these and raise funds to home the Cats but also to raise awareness of the need to protect these incredible animals.

The Amur Leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) has been classified as critically endangered with approximately just 90 cats left in the World.  They are sparsely distributed across Russia, China, and possibly Korea, and their population is still in decline, threatened by increasing damage to their habitat by deforestation and excessive tree logging.

It is our aim to raise vital funds for the plight of the wild Amur Leopard by holding our Big Cat Open Days.

"The resident Birds of Prey at Rutland Wildlife Sanctuary THANK YOU for your continued support, it is never taken for granted"
