The animal nursery at the Tanganyika Wildlife Park is filled with excitement. Six breeds of rare and endangered cats are part of their international breeding program and they have had 21 cubs born just since March.


For 30 years, the facility has been working to save many species that might otherwise become extinct due to a variety of reasons, including poaching.

In a report from KAKE, Matt Fouts, Tanganyika Assistant Director, said, “”Just like a human baby, they have to be fed every couple of hours. With so many, especially if you don’t have a lot of people helping, it might take two hours or an hour-and-a-half to feed them all. And you get… a ten-minute break, and have to start the whole process over again.”
