Cat Survival Trust
The Cat Survival Trust provides accommodation for a number of endangered species of wild cats including Amur Leopards, Caracals, Lynx, Jaguars, Geoffrey’s Cat, Clouded Leopard, Palla’s Cat, Puma, Serval, Scottish Wild Cat and the Snow Leopards which have featured on the television. Now a regular feature of Welwyn Week, the Cat Survival Trust are laying on more activities for this year’s Festival – providing a unique opportunity as the centre is not normally open to the public so you can see these rare cats and find out more about the work of the Trust both in the UK and abroad to support these endangered species:

The Cat Survival Trust is a registered charity which owns a twelve acre site in Welwyn. It is run by unpaid volunteers based in an office above the Farm Shop, who fund-raise, manage administration, sell animal foodstuffs in the shop, care for the cats, construct and maintain the buildings and the site where the big cats are housed.
Voluntary workers are always welcome, bringing skills and learning others. If you feel you want to help by volunteering, becoming a member of the Trust, adopting a Big Cat or help with find-raising, let them know. There is a wealth of information plus fantastic photos on the Cat Survival Trust website.
