Our Education Program is targetted at schools and educational institutions, particularly those from disadvantaged communities. Our goal is to talk about conservation and to draw attention to the plight of wild cats, confined in impoverished, captive environments throughout the world. Our Big Cat Rescue and Education Centres are operated in tandem with the Born Free Foundation.A Worthy Cause

It’s the mission of The Born Free Foundation, founded by actress and conservationist Virginia McKenna and her late husband Bill Travers, to ‘Keep Wildlife in the Wild’. Both Shamwari and Born Free aim to promote conservation and protect these species and their habitat, whilst maintaining a compassionate approach to the welfare of animals. The rescue and education centres home rescued lions and leopards from across the world and aim to be an enlightening experience for all visitors.
