A Safe Home for Endangered Big Cats at 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. We are nestled among the horse farms and estates of Wellington, Florida, near Palm Beach. Panther Ridge is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit institution that provides 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 of exotic big cats, as well as about programs around the world that try to help re-establish their populations. We collaborate with, and help raise money for, other organizations around the world that run cooperative captive breeding programs, conservation projects, and reintroduction programs. These are the foundation upon which the re-population of endangered feline species will be based.
