In 1983 Tippi Hendren established the Shambala Preserve in California’s Mojave Desert, a wildlife sanctuary for lions and tigers. This lions name is Togar. He was brought to the sanctuary but had never been around any other lions. He had to live with humans or be put down. This family took him in and loved him and he never hurt anyone.

Darwin’s fox is critically endangered, due to its small numbers, with just two known populations. Greatest threat to survival on the mainland is the presence of unleashed dogs in Nahuelbuta National Park, which may attack the foxes & have the potential to transmit diseases. Despite dogs being prohibited from the park. The larger island population appears safer, with Chiloé National Park encompassing most of the still untouched rainforest of the island & containing a sizable fox population.
