Savage Hart was built upon strong ethical values to conserve and protect all wild animals and their natural habitat.
To ensure that wild animals and their natural habitats are sustained for future generations.
We are dedicated to the protection and conservation of all wild animals and their natural environment. Because many wild animals are often orphaned and/or injured as a result of human-wildlife conflicts, we believe that those animals deserve a second chance to be wild and free. We exist to facilitate animal welfare and promote peaceful coexistence between wild animals and humans.
Our projects focus on wildlife rehabilitation, human-wildlife conflict solutions, and anti-poaching efforts both domestically and internationally.
Some of the organization’s perspectives on conservation subjects are as follows:
- Savage Hart DOES support wildlife rehabilitation to conserve and protect native species. If an animal is orphaned and/or injured due to human error, it is our responsibility to rehabilitate and return that animal to their natural environment.
- Savage Hart does NOT support the exploitation of wild animals, which includes but is not limited to: entertainment, cub petting, photo sessions, and physical contact with captive wild animals (unless part of a licensed rehab program)
- Savage Hart does NOT support captive breeding unless part of the SSP (Species Survival Plan). Wild animals breed very well in their natural environment to sustain populations.
- Savage Hart does NOT support the possession of any wild animals as pets.
