Daniell Cheetah Project (DCP) has opened its heart and doors to other non-profitable conservation organizations. DCP has joined hands with Wild Cats World (WCW) and Symba Wildlife Conservation (SWC) in the effort to protect our wildlife. WCW and SWC are independent organizations that do not form part of the Daniell Cheetah Project.
In 2010 DCP has arranged an agreement with WCW which allows them to continue to do their conservation efforts on DCP grounds for as long as they remain true and ethical to the conservation of our wildlife.
In 2012 SWC saved the two lions, Chuck and Norris, and DCP provided the grounds to ensure that they have a safe and happy home. Since then, DCP and SWC have helped each other in our common mission to ensure a safe future for our wildlife.
Wild Cats World
Wild Cats World (WCW) is just one person, founder/director Babette de Jonge, idealistic wild cats enthusiast for ages (for background scroll down), started the foundation in 2010 together with Eva Julia Christiie, a Norwegian illusionist. This cooperation lasted for just a few months. Babette wanted to believe they shared the best interest for the wild cat species, so that together they would not only rescue the tigers Eva was working with, from a life in circus and small/unnatural environment as they intended to, but also to give the best of welfare to many other abused wild cats, and at the same time contribute to conservation of the wild species.
Babette worked on alone and lifted the foundation WCW up to the current standard and has still been pursuing her dreams and passion to do what’s best for the wild cats, in captivity and in the wild. The past few years amazingly backed up by her boyfriend Anton Buijen van Weelden (also: Wild Cats Films), in spirit and sponsoring, who shares the same passion.
In South Africa, Indonesia & Nepal associations, alliances/partners are working closely with Wild Cats World, like Daniell Cheetah Project, Cat Conservation Trust, the Wanicare Foundation and Jane Goodall Institute Nepal. These associations are essential for the work WCW has in mind for both captive and wild species, as well as the work in education, raising awareness, releasing some cats back to their natural habitat.
