• Big Cats at the Wildlife Heritage Foundation

    Posted on June 18, 2013 by in Galleries, Nature, Updates

    bigcats13_0189We visited the Wildlife Heritage Foundation as part of a photography workshop organised by Photographers On Safari at the start of May and are pleased to offer a selection of photos from the day. After the health and safety briefing from John Wright, we were given some tips and tuition to set us up for the day and John was on hand to offer advice and as much or as little help as we needed. We were accompanied by one of the Foundation staff and given access to various enclosures to make  the best of the light. We were treated to marvellous weather and I can’t speak highly enough of the day. The range of cats includes some of the rarest on the planet and we got to see African Lions, Amur Leopards, Amur Tigers, Bengal Tigers, Black Leopard, Cheetah, Clouded Leopards, Eurasian Lynx, Fishing Cats, Pumas, Serval and Sumatran Tigers. Due to a recent birth the White Lions were only seen from a distance, the Pallas Cats were not playing ball, the Snow Leopard was mourning the loss of its partner  and the Jaguars are considered to dangerous for photo encounters.

    If you ever get the chance to visit I can’t recommend it highly enough and would urge you to take the opportunity.

    A selection of photos from the day can be reached by clicking on the photo or here  As always any comments or critiques are always welcomed.
