Animal welfare

Bethlehem, South Africa

Animals born and raised in captivity often outgrow their institutional function and accommodations. As a result, many captive animals live in environments that do not properly accommodate their needs. This article discusses the evolution of a South African habitat for large wild cats, a habitat--known as Lionsrock--developed and operated by the European animal welfare organization Four Paws. It explains why and how Four Paws founded Lionsrock and describes the organization's effort in acquiring the large cats, most of which were previously living under conditions not appropriate for their needs. It also overviews how Four Paws is helping the local community living near Lionsrock understand the significance of investing in animal welfare.
