National Big Cat Sanctuary Sponsored by the National Parks and the us Fish and Wildlife Service

A safe area with qualified experts is needed for rescuing and caring for large cats. Many of these species are endangered and must be protected. The US federal government should partner with Wildlife experts to create a large sanctuary for these big cats.

The tiger is protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), an agreement among 175 nations to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is the federal agency responsible for the U.S. Government’s implementation of CITES.

In 1994, the United States Congress passed a law to establish the Rhinoceros and Tiger Conservation Fund to help protect, conserve, and manage these amazing species. Since 1996, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has used this fund to support anti -poaching initiatives, development of nature reserves, wildlife surveys and monitoring, management of human-wildlife conflict, public awareness campaigns, and other conservation efforts related to tiger survival.

Current Sanctuaries are often run by small charities and are limited on staff, resources, and land. The US federal government has a lot of unused land and the president could designate specific land as a national park and use this to house big cats.

Big Cats Need Bigger Areas To Move Around
The United States government owns 47 percent of all land in the West.

With a partnership between government and existing big Cat sanctuaries and experts, big cats can be provided with more area to roam and better care.

With good marketing it is possible for government to make this program net-neutral to their budget. Most popular national parks make profits from visitor spending while at the park. With the unique nature of a national park dedicated to big cats it could draw a lot of attention and produce a lot of revenue.
