Since 1983, Shambala, a unique eighty acre wildlife habitat founded by actress and conservationist Tippi Hedren, has provided a haven for endangered exotic big cats - many of them orphans, confiscated from illegal owners or cast-offs from circuses, zoos and private owners who could no longer care for them. The Roar Foundation supports The Shambala Preserve and shares its mission to educate the public about exotic animals, to advocate for legislation to protect them, and to provide sanctuary for exotic animals who have suffered from mistreatment and neglect so they can regain their physical and mental health and live their lives in dignity.
International Primate Protection League
Keeping Whooping Cranes Safe is a project of the International Crane Foundation to reduce human-caused mortality of Whooping Cranes. Despite having increased from fewer than 20 birds in the 1940's to around 600 in captivity and the wild today, the Whooping Crane is still among the rarest birds in North America. The survival of Whooping Cranes depends on the actions of people protecting the ecosystems where Whooping Cranes live and living in harmony with the birds. The Keeping Whooping Cranes Safe program raises awareness and pride in Whooping Cranes through fun, engaging activities in local communities.
