Bracelets made with love to raise awareness of big cat conservation

The Big Cat Sanctuary

Providing a future for some of the most beautiful and endangered cats in the world. Home to over 50 cats including African Lions, Sumatran Tigers, Jaguars, Amur Leopards and Snow Leopards to name just a few. They are located in the heart of the Kent countryside in the UK. The 32 acre plot began as a refuge for big cats that had been rescued from less than desirable homes, the site has now become a sanctuary and breeding centre that takes a personal approach to their wildlife residents.

With progressively more involvement in both fundraising and supporting conservation initiatives at The Big Cat Sanctuary, they also contribute to in-situ conservation projects around the globe. By securing a future for both big and small cats they are conserving and restoring the balance of the ecosystem in which predators play such a vital role. In doing this they are saving not just isolated species but our entire natural world.
