As 2023 comes to a close, we look back proudly at all we’ve accomplished this past year, and we look forward to continuing our work towards a world where humans treat animals with respect, empathy, and understanding.
Here are some highlights from 2023:
Charlota the white tiger was bred for her unique look and kept in inappropriate conditions as a pet. After her rescue, she lives at TIERART Wild Animal Sanctuary in Germany. Read more here.
Kept in a tiny cage for two decades, bear Na has shown amazing resilience since being rescued from the cruel bear bile trade, and she’s enjoying her new home at BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh in Vietnam. Learn more.
Found roaming the streets of war-torn Kharkiv in Ukraine, the young lioness was rescued and brought to FELIDA Big Cat Sanctuary in the Netherlands. She was recently introduced to another young lion, Nikola. Read more about Vasylyna’s journey here.
Ramba, a white tiger cub was rescued from private keeping in the Czech Republic and brought to TIERART Wild Animal Sanctuary in Germany, where she will be reunited with her sister, Charlota. Learn more.
When we rescue an animal, we care for them for the #RestOfTheirLives. In 2023, we provided a home and medical care for a total of 142 bears and 137 big cats in our sanctuaries. Learn more about our sanctuaries.
We continued our medical care for elephants Noor Jehan and Madhubala in Pakistan, and after Noor Jehan’s tragic passing, we continue to advocate for Madhubala’s relocation and reunion with her sisters. Learn more.
