“Preserving the Big Cats”

Project Survival's Cat Haven is an innovative park dedicated to the preservation of wild cats. It specializes in education and is engaged in both captive and range country conservation. It is this link to the conservation of cats in their native habitat which makes the work of the Cat Haven especially meaningful. The facility is not a rescue organization. The wild cats which come here are chosen carefully for their contributions... Project Survival is a 501 c 3 non profit organization. The facility commands panoramic views across the foothills of the Shannon Valley. It benefits from cool evening breezes, low humidity and equitable temperatures. Old growth manzanita, live oak and buckeye trees, interspersed with small to massive granite boulders, make the terrain highly attractive. Three springs on the property produce excellent water and supply a year round pond and waterfall. Cat enclosures take advantage of these natural features, providing the animals with great opportunities for play and privacy. The exhibits are spaced at intervals along a pathway which winds beneath oaks and manzanita, giving visitors a sense of discovery as they walk up to each exhibit.

This is a guided tour and not like a zoo where you can walk around and see the animals or views at your leisure. The staff are very nice and friendly. My children LOVED this tour!

Only $15 for a really cool walking tour to see big cats. Takes only about an hour and a half (if that), and they have everything! Caracals, lynxes, cheetahs, lions, snow leopards, tigers, jaguars and more. The highlight was seeing the tigers play, and frolic around in the water. If you are in the area or passing through I would definitely recommend.

I went here with my 13 and 15 year old daughters. The tour lasted approximately an hour. We loved it. I’ve never seen big cats so close. We would definitely go again!
