Animals available for sponsorship
The Sunda pangolin is a scaly mammal that eats ants and termites, hides in dense forest, and rolls into a tiny ball when scared. However, this secretive and solitary animal is also the most illegally traded mammal…
Meet the slow loris, the only existing venomous primate. This adorable creature, whose big eyes and timid demeanor have garnered it internet fame and media attention, is now threatened with extinction as they become increasingly popular as pets.
Named for its uniquely spotted coat, the clouded leopard is a reclusive Asian cat that is rarely seen in the wild. While little is still known about their behavior in the wild, they are extremely skilled climbers that can hunt in trees and on the ground.
Also known as bearcats (and affectionately called bintys), they are curious animals that belong to the civet family, are mostly nocturnal, and can live as long as 18 years! They spend most of their time in trees, climbing with the help of their large claws…
The great hornbill is one of the largest members of the hornbill family. They can weigh up to 7 pounds and reach up to 3.5 feet in length. Their unique casques are thought to help amplify their loud calls.
The reclusive sun bear, the smallest member of the bear family, is named after the golden patch of fur on their chest, which legend says represents the rising sun. Their stout stature suits their arboreal lifestyle…
Sponsorship gifts support the work of the Care for Rescued Wildlife Program and help to care for all the rescued wildlife. In order to make sure that your gift has the greatest impact and helps the maximum number of animals, it will be used to support not only the individual care of your sponsored animal, but wherever it is needed most.
Every sponsorship will receive a printable welcome pack and all subsequent updates, notifications and newsletters via email. This e-packet saves us money on printing and postage so every dollar you donate goes directly towards the animals’ care.
At our release station we do indeed intend to release the animals back into the wild for a second chance. For these ambassador animals we will likely track them and can continue to provide some updates. Joa the great hornbill, for example, has lived freely around the station ever since he had enough feathers, he hasn’t flown away yet, so we can still provide updates on his antics. Of course sometimes animals may pass away unexpectedly. In general we issue sponsorships only for animals who are not elderly and not likely candidates for adoption. However, in the event of death or release we’ll make every effort to notify you as soon as possible, and give you the option of transferring your sponsorship to a different animal, continuing with the new species ambassador or ending it.
