To ensure a future for the world’s 40 wild cat species and their dwindling habitat.
To protect, study and conserve many of the smaller wild cat species.
To create awareness, while developing and strengthening our conservation breeding and research activities.
Ben Britton is the Director of the Wild Cat Conservation Centre in the beautiful Hawkesbury, one hour north west of Sydney, Australia. Our centre in Wilberforce focuses on the preservation and conservation of wild cats of the world, including the only conservation breeding program for Cheetah in Sydney. With a strong focus on the plight of small cats and to improve our understanding of them.
Of the 40 cat species, 33 are considered small cats and many of these are threatened with a real lack of knowledge about their behaviour, biology and conservation.
Visitors to our centre can learn about our conservation breeding programs and research efforts to conserve these smaller though enigmatic wild cat species.
Private Tours of our centre can be arranged by appointment, with bookings available from Wednesday through to Sunday each week. These private tours offer the unique opportunity to go behind the scenes and learn about the work we are doing to conserve wild cats both here in Sydney and in Southern Africa, raising awareness of the plight and vulnerability of wild cat species.
This once in a lifetime experience provides the perfect opportunity for visitors to meet some of our amazing cats and learn about how they can help us protect these beautiful animals, we believe that this experience engages our guests to learn more about our conservation efforts and help us protect these threatened and endangered species.
