Adopt Roque the Tiger

Magnificent Roque, our beautiful tiger, urgently needs adopting. Can you help?

Roque is an amazing tiger.  He lives at Born Free’s tiger sanctuary in a place called Bannerghatta, in southern India.  Roque, born on 17th May 1998, lives in a big forest enclosure and enjoys exploring.  He climbs over boulders, rolls in sandy soil, and keeps cool in his deep pool.  Roque has a very sad story, but today he gets the loving care he needs.

Roque was only a few days old when he was taken from his mother.  He was put on sale in a pet-shop in Barcelona in Spain.  The tiny cub was scared and lonely.  He was kept in a small glass tank and paced up and down, crying for his mum.  Born Free doesn’t think it is a good idea to keep wild animals as pets.  They belong in the wild and it is very difficult to properly care for them. 

Born Free rescued Roque and brought him to his new home in India.  The cute and cuddly cub has grown into a big and impressive adult.  He enjoys patrolling his territory and investigates the forest and the insects, lizards and small mammals that live there.  His favourite place is beneath a large bush high up on a rocky bank beside his pool, where he gets a great view of the countryside

Adopt Roque from just £2.50 per month and help fund his daily food and care AND support big cat protection worldwide.  You’ll get a great Gift Pack.

Adopt Jasper the Tiger

Adopt a tiger

Jasper is a male tiger born in October 1998. He was confiscated from a wildlife trader in the Snoul Kratie Province of east Cambodia. He was less than a month old and it is thought that poachers killed his mother.

The trader was taking Jasper to Vietnam, a transit point to Taiwan, China and Japan, when a forestry official from the Wildlife Protection Office (WPO) apprehended the trader and confiscated the tiger.

The cub was taken to a rescue centre just outside Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and Care for the Wild immediately sent vets, supplies and medicines for the malnourished cub. As Jasper was removed from the wild at such a young age he can never return to the wild and so we have pledged long-term support for his care.

Adopt Jasper here from £2.50 a month
