ADOPT đại lải
THE leopard cat
about đại lải
Đại Lải was transferred from the Vinh Phuc Forest Protection Department in 2008 and was the first leopard cat to be rescued by the CPCP/ SVW. A farmer found her and voluntarily handed her over to the local authority.
Only about three weeks old and weighing 290 grams, Đại Lải needed special care so the keepers fed her with milk and checked her health and physical condition every day. Đại Lải is now an active cat and often walks around her enclosure to keep an eye on everything.
Bringing rescued wild animals to animal protection organizations and rescue centers helps those individuals to live in the most suitable conditions.
When you symbolically adopt Đại Lải for one year, you are helping to save the Leopard Cat – a wild species of cat that is now threatened in Vietnam.

Leopard cats (Felis bengalensis)
are a wild cat hunted and traded for their fur and for the pet trade. They are becoming increasingly vulnerable in Vietnam.
In the wild they are nocturnal hunters, eating rodents, frogs, insects, lizards and fish. They sleep in trees, often high in the canopy and their fur colour changes based on local environmental conditions.
