We just have one enclosure left to to complete in Wild Woodlands and Aslan’s pride will move to this new area. Then their old enclosure can be reconfigured into 3 smaller enclosures with 3 indoor rooms for cougars and other cats!
Funding is still needing for caves, landscaping and permanent pools. But with your help, we are on our way to completing this free-roaming big cat area!
June 2012 – We have four more free-roaming habitats to build in Wild Woodlands for the big cats. You can be part of this amazing project. Watch the video and see how your help allows the cats of TWS to live wild at heart.
Cougars have up to 20,000 square feet to roam. Tigers, Titan and Lilly can swim in Tiger Splash. Servals, Denali and O’Malley have jungle gyms and caves. Bengals, Ciega and Spartacus can climb through pine trees and lounge in their hammocks. All of these wild spaces include heated central buildings where the cats can escape extreme temperatures. Your help provided open spaces where they can be wild at heart.
Over the past year, we have accepted six additional tigers, several bobcats and servals. We now need to build Wild Woodlands – a free roaming area for multiple species in need. This area will accommodate the smallest serval to the largest lion. It will be be built to allow any cat to be wild at heart. And we need your help.
This new area will consist of a 36′ x 64′ central building. The building will be divided into separate areas for large and small cats. It will be constructed to have large cat habitats off one side and smaller cats on the opposite side. Most enclosures will have hallways between the enclosures eliminating any shared walls. This will allow us the flexibility of housing cats that may be intimidated by other cats or need more time to acclimate peacefully.
Each habitat will include perches, water features similar to Tiger Splash, hammocks and landscaping. The enclosures will also have zip lines to allow moveable enrichment and toys.
Several acres have already been excavated. Poles have been set for the first enclosure. The perimeter fence has been installed and the building will be built in the spring. We need your continued support to keep this project moving.
Each vertical pole is $80.
The perimeter fence is $10 a foot.
The completed project will be $343,000.
