Tigers For Tigers Coalition Update
The National T4T Coalition has been very productive since the conference in April. So far we have developed and sent letters to our congressmen asking for their support for H.R.1998. We also developed an informational sheet on the influence of crime syndicates on wildlife trade.
Last week, members of the coalition were in Washington DC with David Houghton of the National Wildlife Refuge Association and Tracy Coppola of the International Fund for Animal Welfare to meet with congress to discuss Read More
Just about everything
First of all, despite the lies that the breeder told you, those cubs were not "orphaned" or "rejected." That is just the terminology that exploiters use to make you feel good about them purposely breeding litter after litter of lions and tigers, ripping them from their mothers and pimping them out so you can have your picture made with a cub.
Using lion cubs and tiger cubs as photo props is bad enough, but some back yard breeders have figured out a way to make even more money: Swim with tiger cubs.

Tigers For Tigers Coalition
Tigers For Tigers Coalition (T4TCoalition.org) was founded in 1997 as a way of harnessing the team spirit of colleges with tiger mascots to protect tigers. It has grown over the years and has been inclusive of any tiger mascotted school who wanted to participate.

Investigations by the London-based Read More

You may be wondering: How will Big Cat Rescue's cats be able to go on vacation?

It's been our dream for years to be able to construct a special enclosure that can be used to rotate cats in and out of their permanent enclosures. Read More
