National Tiger Sanctuary
National Tiger Sanctuary was established in 2000 to create a safe haven for animals and to teach visitors about the environment. The educational facilities explore the conditions that are affecting the planet’s ecosystems, and a group of resident tigers and lions demonstrate the potential beauty of the earth. The Sanctuary houses both big cats, including a mountain lion and a black Asian leopard, and domestic cats and dogs, which often come through homelessness or abandonment. While living at the sanctuary, tigers eat only food approved for human consumption, each portion weighed to the health needs of each animal. Staff members get to know every cat in their care to discover their particular likes and dislikes, and to learn about their personalities. To reduce stress, humans never go into the animal area and never lock the cats in at night.
