Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary is a not-for-profit animal welfare and wellbeing organisation providing sanctuary to previously abused and displaced big cats in the optimum environment of the South African bushveld.
While these big cats may never be reintroduced to the freedom of the wild, our primary mission nonetheless is to provide them freedom from hunger, thirst and malnutrition, freedom from discomfort, pain, injury and disease, and freedom from fear and distress.
Emoya is not open to the general public and has a no-interaction and no-breeding policy.
Our secondary mission is educating people especially the youth about the captive wildlife crises, illegal trade and poaching.
Our guiding principles are
Big Cat focussed
Continuous improvement of the sanctuary facility as well as our knowledge and application of knowledge
