Cat Ambassador Program

Our Nat Geo Wild Cat Ambassador Program is unique and the only program of it’s kind in Australia, that see’s leash trained servals traveling to schools throughout NSW to educate children on the conservation of Africa’s wild cats.

Students observe and discuss what makes these cats uniquely adapted to their environment, their role in the ecosystem and what can be done to protect all wild cats natural habitat.

Through interaction with our Director Ben Britton, students learn about what is being done to meet the challenges to their survival and how they can get involved in the conservation of them.
