About This Place
Adventure is waiting just down the road at Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge in Tyler! See tigers, lions, leopards and other big cats. It's fun for the whole family! "It's not a zoo; it's a mission: saving tigers one by one!"Welcome to Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge, international home to over 50 rescued big cats. Come meet these majestic animals, learn about the feline species known as Panthera Tigris and find out how you can help to ensure their future in the United States and worldwide. We started Tiger Creek for a very specific purpose: "To provide rescue and rehabilitation of big cats that have been abused, neglected or displaced." It continues to be our guiding mission, and as we continue to expand, we are working to establish large natural settings for the big cats. We are also working in an outreach program for the tigers in the wild, as well as genetic research, and we have a strong educational program that includes internship opportunities. We opened Tiger Creek to the public for the purpose of promoting stewardship through educational opportunities for people of all ages. With a mission like ours, we sometimes feel overwhelmed but thanks to financial supporters like you, we are Saving Tigers One By One... We're glad that you're here, so have a good time and please don't forget to stop in for a personal visit and watch your investment continue to grow.
