Flagship Species

Click to accept cookies and enable this content

A flagship species is one chosen to represent an environmental cause. And often we see lions and tigers used in promotion and advertising. And these are the two species used the most to produce cubs for the industry as well, and there are ethics matters that come into play with that. There are an estimated 41 species of felines out there and by protecting enough habitat for lions and tigers we then save habitat for all the lesser known cats as well.

Big Cat Rescue is committed in not only giving our residents the best life possible but we also support saving wild habitat. bigcatrescue.org Big Cat Rescue is a proud supporting member of the International Tiger Coalition, Snow Leopard Trust, among other feline conservation efforts.
