ADI WILDLIFE SANCTUARY, SOUTH AFRICA

For 2019 Trees for Tigers is helping fund the construction of platforms and shelters for the 27 lions rescued from circuses in Peru and Columbia.  You would never know by looking at these contented faces that they were all living in circus cages for many years and had never felt grass on their feet.  We are happy to help ADI with the construction of their new sanctuary in South Africa.
 

WildCat Ridge Sanctuary

For 2019, Trees for Tigers is funding two bunker/mound features in two new enclosures at WildCat Ridge Sanctuary. In addition, two large trees native to Oregon are being provided (one Big Leaf Maple and one Northern Red Oak). The cats soon to be residents will be enjoying low horizontal branches to climb onto in the next few years.

Black Beauty Ranch

Our new project with Black Beauty Ranch includes upgrades to the Lar Gibbon habitat, the capuchin habitat and new in-ground pools for Tibor and Sammi, two American black bears. Here are the “before” pictures of the habitats. Stay tuned for wonderful things to come!

WildCat Ridge Sanctuary

The tigers at WildCat Ridge are enjoying some new toys provided by Trees for Tigers.

 

Junebug and Valentino are enjoying their new habitat funded by Trees for Tigers and created by the Siamang Gibbons’ caregivers. You will see that the structures needed to be very sturdy to withstand the strength of these beautiful primates.

Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch

Trees for Tigers funded the renovation of a habitat at Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch in Murchison, Texas. Here reside two wonderful Siamang Gibbons named June Bug and Valentino (a brother and sister rescued from the exotic pet trade).

WildCat Ridge Sanctuary in Oregon

“The hybrid cats are enjoying the creative perches and structures specially built for them in their beautiful new habitat by the volunteers at WildCat Ridge Sanctuary in Oregon – project funded by Trees for Tigers”

WildCat Ridge Sanctuary

“The outdoor play area in the hybrid cat habitat has been expanded to include a second tier of perches, catwalks and bamboo bridge connecting the right and left sides.  The two Vine Maple trees provide lots of places for the cats to hide, play and sleep in this “mini forest” habitat.  Beautiful finish work and creativity at this sanctuary.

Animal Defenders International Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa

Pictures of the new Animal Defenders International Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa. We bought 42 large indigenous trees for the new sanctuary. These pictures are of the tree planting at ADI Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa that will be home to rescued lions from circuses closing down around the world.

Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary

Trees for Tigers provided a climbing structure and some trees for Cooper the mountain lion and some rope to make a scratching post for Carli and Lily, two tigers at Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary.

These are some pictures from the circus rescue in Guatelama. Jan Creamer and Tim Phillips from ADI are in Guatemala rescuing animals in the circuses that have been closed down. The animals have nowhere to go, and ADI is finding homes for them. The lions will be flown to South Africa to stay in ADI’s new Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa.
