About our animals

The animals resident at the Cango Wildlife Ranch come from all over the world and are here for a huge variety of reasons. Some of our animals have been rescued from the wild or landed on our doorstep by default. It is heartwarming to see how many concerned animal people you find in everyday living. We get a huge amount of concerned citizens bringing us injured animals picked up next to the road. These little patients are usually nursed back to health and released back into the wild depending on the nature of their injuries.

Some of our snakes and crocodiles are only here for a short period of time. We have breeding exchange programs with a fair amount of breeding facilities and will ‘ swop’ some of our animals for a period of time to make sure that the animals don’ t interbreed. Our cheetahs, Pygmy hippos & Radiated Tortoises are part of our breeding and educational program.

These endangered animals are being bred in captivity to ensure the survival of the species. Their residency also provides much needed education to the general public visiting the ranch about the plight of not only these particular species but animals all over the world. Our mission is to save animals such as the cheetah from extinction and to educate people about the vulnerability and importance of wildlife diversity.
