Dr. Chloe Wilde is our wildlife biologist. She studied ecology at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Her favorite topic of study is conservation. Dr. Wilde is passionate about learning about and teaching others about how they can help wild cat populations, including reducing their use of products with palm oil in them. Though Carolina Tiger Rescue does not have any, Dr. Wilde’s favorite animal to study is the clouded leopard.

With 2021 coming to an end, I would like to take some time to reflect back on some of the memories, rescues and the year we have had here at Carolina Tiger Rescue.

In May, Carolina Tiger Rescue assisted and participated in a large-scale rescue to rehome over 60 large cats and provided homes for a few of those animals. Due to the sensitive nature of the case, we cannot share details about the rescue or the animals at this time. In August, Carolina Tiger Rescue became home to a serval named Pixie. Pixie was found wandering a wooded area in the Northeast United States and she was picked up by local authorities before making her way to Carolina Tiger Rescue. Pixie is our smallest serval, weighing in at just 14 pounds, and she is settling in well to life at the sanctuary.

In addition to rescues, we received so much love and support from our amazing volunteers, adoptive parents and visitors this year. During our giving Tuesday campaign, we raised funds to purchase a transport trailer and truck to aid in rescuing more wild cats in need. We welcomed new volunteers, work groups and classrooms to the sanctuary to share our mission and support the animals that call Carolina Tiger Rescue home.  Our mission would not be possible without the incredible support we receive from all of our supporters, thank you!

That’s a wrap on 2021! I can’t wait to see what 2022 brings!
