On Sunday, February 28, Wild Wonders will host a small gathering at their wild animal refuge in Bonsall to honor the passing of Victor.
Many long-time friends and supporters of Wild Wonders recall when Victor arrived in July, 2006 from South Africa. He had been raised to be an ambassador animal, and over his lifetime,he inspired hundreds of people to care about the plight of his wild cousins and raised thousands of dollars for Cheetah conservation organizations.
Victor was enormous in personality and heart. He happily shared his habitat with bunnies, birds, and lizards, and was known for his “pocket size purr”.
Part of the celebration event will be a dedication of a beautiful bench near the cheetah habitat, home to Masika and Hasani, Wild Wonders’ other two cheetahs.
If you had met Victor or are concerned about the future of the remaining 7000 cheetahs in the wild, two cheetah conservation organizations that would welcome your donation are Cheetah Conservation Fund and Cheetah Outreach Trust.
