Four tigers on a train



FROM: a deserted train wagon in the North of Argentina
TO: Ubuntu Wilidlife Sanctuary in South Africa


In the searing heat of the North West Argentine summer four helpless tigers find themselves victims of a terrible set of circumstances. Locked up permanently in a disused train carriage , they live in a parasite infested waste.

In 2007 a travelling circus asked a local farmer to take care of its tigers, for a few months, but they were never to return. That farmer was now left with the responsibility to care for these animals but neither he nor the local vet had any experience with such animals .They did their best to keep the animals alive with food and water, but their living conditions are minimal and despite the men’s best intentions the animals are in a constant state of suffering.The tigers were never medically examined and live in a unhygienic environment with little space to move, completely open to the elements.

The animals were never sterilized and a series of cubs were born over the year leading now to four tigers, two of which were born in the train carriage.

We cannot sit idly by any longer, the Wildlife Advocates Foundation’s expertise is in identifying animals in such distressed situations and getting them out as quickly as possible.
These animals deserve to spend the rest of their lives recuperating from this trauma in a natural environment, with the feel of soft ground under their paws.

With your help we can do that. Our colleagues at the Ubuntu Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa are waiting with open arms, so we need to get moving ….

We need to raise 25,000 Euro per tiger (costs detailed below). That cost is the only thing stopping these tigers enjoying the rest of their lives as they should, back in nature, with proper nutrition, care, space to roam and freedom.

Let 2021 become the best year of their life. Even the smallest amount counts! The main costs are:

  • Veterinary assistance in Argentina

  • Crate construction

  • Ground transport to the airport of Buenos Aires airport

  • Air transport costs to South Africa

  • Shipment from Johannesburg airport to the Ubuntu Wildlife Sanctuary

  • Construction enclosure at Ubuntu Wildlife Sanctuary

  • Veterinary assistance in South Africa
