Welcome to Panther Ridge

Part habitat, part haven, part labor of feline love, the Panther Ridge Conservation Center is above all else a home for some of the world’s most beautiful and endangered big cats. Nestled among the horse farms and estates of Wellington, Florida, near Palm Beach, Panther Ridge is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit institution dedicated to providing a lifelong home and superior care for exotic felines that have been abandoned, abused or neglected. Panther Ridge also provides hope — in the form of public education concerning the challenges these animals

face in the wild, the problems related to private ownership, and the programs around the world that are trying to help reestablish their populations. We collaborate with, and help raise money for, other organizations around the world that run cooperative captive breeding programs, in situ conservation projects, and reintroduction programs that are the foundation upon which the repopulation of endangered feline species will be based.
