Mizzou Alternative Breaks
A student-led program on the campus of the University of Missouri that sends groups of students across the country over spring, winter, and weekend breaks to work on various service issues. The effort is completely student-led and the largest program of its kind the nation. Every participant is a Mizzou student.
The mission of this wildlife sanctuary is to provide a safe, loving, forever home for endangered big cats, and to educate the public about their plight in the wild and captivity. Our group will enjoy a guided tour of all the Catty Shack residents (Siberian tigers, lions, cougars, black leopards, a bobcat, 4 coatimundis and 2 foxes). Tours begin at 6:00 PM and leave approximately every 15 minutes. Tours last about 45 minutes and include a viewing of all residents, as time allows, along with facts about the animals. To see the feeding, you should arrive at the ranch by 7:00 PM to allow for adequate time for check-in and walking to the feeding point. At 7:30 pm, you will get to watch over 600 pounds of meat distributed throughout the sanctuary. There’s sure to be plenty of roaring!
The deadline for reservations is Thursday, March 30.
