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. This year they held their first National Summit at Clemson University and asked a number of tiger experts to come talk to the students about the real steps they can take, right now, to protect tigers.
They were able to secure Read More

3 Hours of Loading and Unloading Tigers
Flavio, age 24, and SARMOTI, age 20, the circus tigers, go on a Trip, when they need to see the vet. This video makes it look easy, but it took 3 hours to get the tigers off the truck. The 3 hours of coaxing and no tiger made for pretty dull viewing, so only the action shots were captured here. While the tigers were on the road, we cleaned and mowed and shift the Texas Tigers and others around so they could enjoy different views, smells and neighbors.

Florida Shed Movers
Big Cat Rescue's storage shed for gift shop items was on the "cat side" of our fence, so our AdvoCats and Red Shirts could not go out for restocking without an escort. We wanted to move the shed to the Partner / Guest side of the parking lot fence, but were afraid the old shed would just fall to pieces. Rob and crew assured us they could move the shed easily, economically and right away. We need some larger sheds and feel comfortable buying them used Read More
HAPPY EARTH DAY
If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected.

Circle of Life
Today is Jacquie Norris' birthday...but she doesn't know it. She is my maternal grandmother, although until the end she would insist that she was my mother because she didn't want people to think she was old enough to BE a grandmother. She was beautiful and smart but after losing my grandfather in 1997, she was never the same. Depression took her body and mind over the past 15 years and for the last couple of years she Read More
