Join Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in their mission to provide lifetime refuge for abandoned, abused, and neglected “big cats” with emphasis on tigers, lions, leopards, and cougars.
There is no direct contact with the animals at this service site. There are many projects which need to be done that currently take time from the agency's primary staff that care for over 100 exotic cats.
Participants will assist in group projects including, but not limited to, painting, grounds and habitat maintenance, construction and cleanup.
This trip has immediately rendered itself to being one of the best experiences I’ve had because of the emotion and sentiment attached. You get to know the people you’re with and I knew I was going to miss my whole team and living simply in Eureka Springs. Volunteering makes you appreciate and value the little things in life.
