National Tiger Sanctuary
Global Resources for Environmental Education and Nature, dba National Tiger Sanctuary is a non-for-profit organization established in 2000 to create a safe and protected environment to connect with the diversity of creation.
The facility was built entirely with private funds provided through donations from individuals and membership support.
National Tiger Sanctuary also provides interns from all over the world the opportunity to come and study under NTS. Many have returned time and time again just to volunteer throughout the years.
On an annual basis, NTS is inspected by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC), to ensure their ability to safely house tigers and other big cats, as well as the education and safety of the visitors and staff.
