Our vision is that of conservation orientated organization dedicated to maintaining a sanctuary for wild cats, which provides them with the best possible care and security for the future. We in so doing, strive to be able to educate the general public about the plights of wild cats in our care and wildlife in general.
Quote by Lara Mostert: “Many places offer the opportunity for wildlife selfies and wildlife interaction. Wild animals don’t like noisy, chaotic environments, and they most definitely don’t like to be harassed and passed on from tourist to tourist. At The South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance (SAASA) we chose not to be part of this ugly picture. We don’t condone wildlife interaction at any of our sanctuaries, and we actively fight for #animalrightsintourism by educating the visitors to our sanctuaries Monkeyland, The hidden Forest Wildlife Sanctuary in KZN, Birds of Eden and the Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary about the plight of animals, the harmful pet-play-and-pay practices they should stay clear of and we encourage our patrons to support the #HandsOffOurWildlife innitiative – together we CAN make a difference."
"It is vital to educate the youth and teach them to respect animals and treat them with kindness. It is very difficult to change the behaviour and mindset of the older generation. If we don’t shape the minds of the younger generation now, many more species will become extinct before the youth become adults.”
