It’s #WorldRainforestDay! Several of the animals we care for at Carolina Tiger Rescue are species native to rainforests around the world, so it’s important to do what we can to protect their native habitats.
Carolina Tiger Rescue is excited to announce the arrival of their latest rescue, Daisy Coatimundi. Daisy arrived on May 18, and is already adjusting to her new life at the GFAS-accredited sanctuary.
Carolina Tiger Rescue will reopen its gates to the public beginning on June 5, ending what has become a long two-and-a-half months of partial shutdown due to COVID-19. Following Governor Roy Cooper’s Phase II guidelines, members of the public will be able to purchase tour tickets beginning next week.
Did you know? Fewer than 4,000 tigers remain in the wild. Of the nine tiger subspecies, three are now extinct (Javan, Caspian, and Bali) and the South China tiger is considered functionally extinct (not found in the wild) with around 100 individuals living in captivity around the world. On this Endangered Species Day, we challenge you to
do what you can to help protect these and other endangered species around the world!

We could not have weathered this storm without you.
