National Tiger Sanctuary is a non-profit organization that functions as a rescue facility and currently cares about 24 big cats, including white and orange tigers and mountain lion. This exotic animal sanctuary offers both informative and educational approach to visitors that brings awareness to the environmental conditions and effects on the ecosystems. The sanctuary was established in 2000 to create a protected environment that can be a safe natural habitat to diverse exotic creatures. Private funds through donations and support from individuals have helped entirely in building the facility.
This Branson attraction also provides interns from the world over the opportunity to come and study these exotic animals inside the facility of the National Tiger Sanctuary. Many of these interns return to offer volunteer work. The mission of the sanctuary is not just for caring our furry friends, through information and education it provides, it can give a positive impact on the ecosystems and the environment.
The National Tiger Sanctuary is inspected annually by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) to ensure its ability to house in a safe and secure facility for tigers and other big cats as well as educational information and safety of the visitors. The sanctuary was created not only to give shelter to the big cats but also to share knowledge in caring them that can benefit both the caretakers and the exotic animals. The sanctuary focuses on big cats that need to be protected and preserved for their survival.
The sanctuary provides both an educational visit and exciting outdoor adventure for the whole family. See these exotic and beloved animals that roam freely in the sanctuary. Witness their natural instincts, behaviors, happiness, and their adaptability to nature as compared to caged animals. Get the chance to feed the animals through a specially-designed tube and watching them move in a distinctive behavior. The safety of guests is a top priority in the sanctuary, so it is not permitted to pet these animals or get too close to them. These animals are deserving of your attention, but they’re still wild animals where you need extra care.
