Panthera Africa Big Cat Sanctuary, Stanford
Based in Stanford in the Cape, Panthera Africa Big Cat Sanctuary. For any captive bred big cats, where they are protected to prosper in a healthy environment.
One of Panthera Africa’s main purposes is to be an educational platform. Where we create awareness about conditions big cats face in captivity. .. And how animal welfare and enrichment play a vital role in giving them the best captive life possible. We are a true sanctuary where no cub petting, breeding or trading takes place. This makes us a blue print of how a non-profit sanctuary, focusing on animal welfare, can become self-sufficient.
Our aim: to change all breeding facilities into sustainable ethical projects.
Panthera Africa is an environmentally friendly sanctuary for any captive bred big cats. Here, they are protected to prosper for the rest of their lives.
Panthera Africa believes in the connection between both environmental and wildlife conservation. We are fast becoming the first “green” big cat sanctuary in South Africa. With plans to run on solar energy.
Panthera Africa has found it’s 40 hectare paradise with a beautiful home for the animals, the owners and the many volunteers visiting. The land is filled with lots of large trees, a natural spring and an amazing 360 degree mountain view!
We believe in the saying “In union there is strength”. By standing together, human and animal. Our vision sees the possibility of a prosperous future for the big cats, and we take pride in ‘speaking’ on their behalf.
