Big Cat Sanctuary Lionsrock

In South Africa many big cats are waiting for an appropriate accommodation. In order to help trophy hunters to a quick success, these lions are held in very small enclosures without any retreat possibilities. Here they often vegetate until they are being sold for hunts. Animal protectors from over the whole world are striving to put an end to this cruel canned hunting since many years. As these lions grow up with  humans and are accustomed to them, they cannot be released into the wild anymore.

Lionsrock - a FOUR PAWS project

After extensive research in various countries FOUR PAWS decided to take over an already existing park in South Africa. In the centre of the area is a prominent rock called 'LIONSROCK'. This became the name of the big cat sanctuary.


On the approximately 1,250 hectares area, lions and tigers have found a new home where they are safe from bullets and well looked after in a species appropriate environment.
