About Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation
The Black Jaguar-White Tiger™ Foundation is inspired by a single unexpected act of Love, and a whole lot of trust and magic. The Foundation thinks outside the box, and will never breed the rescued Animals if they are not going to be able to re-introduce them into their natural habitat. So based on this idea, since they were born and currently live in captivity, they found out that the more Animals living together in one group, the happier they are, regardless of the species. The BJWT Foundation do not breed the Animals, and even though different species living with each other would never occur in the wild, they cohabitate in the Sanctuary because they were born and currently live in captivity due to the human destruction all around the Planet.
The Foundation hopes to inspire people to get along amongst them, because if a Leopard and a Lion can Love each other then it is possible for us humans to do the same.
