Planet Earth is a great place, thanks in large part to all of the magnificent species who call it home. However, many of them have regrettably become extinct. And, in the vast majority of situations, people are to fault. Tigers are also on the endangered species list. It is estimated that about 3.900 of these majestic animals remain in the world. But there are still many people who want to save these beauties. One of them is the owner of Carli and Lily.
They were rescued from neglected and extremely dirty conditions. Fortunately, they now have a new home at the Safe Haven Rescue Zoo, a GFAS-approved wildlife sanctuary located in a very remote area of Nevada. However, it is very hot here, so the pool is desperately needed. And it was a great opportunity for Carli and Lily to see what swimming in the pool is like.
“For the first time, they will be able to experience what swimming is like,” said Kelly Donithan, IFAW Wildlife Rescue Operator. “We live in a controversial world where there is too little wildlife roaming the desert and too much wildlife suffering behind bars. It is not conservation. Keeping big cats or other wild animals thousands of miles away from their home territory for entertainment, photography, or personal possession will not increase populations in the wild, nor will the public truly educate themselves about what a tiger (or any other wild animal) really is. ”
“The rescued tigers Carli and Lily now have a new home at the Safe Haven Rescue Zoo,” the video captions reads. “Located in a high desert valley protected by high mountain peaks on all sides, Safe Haven is an oasis.”
This is an inspiring video of rescued tigers swim for the first time in their new sanctuary.
