paws for cause logoPaws for the Cause! Did you know that palm oil is a form of vegetable oil that you likely eat or use every day? Most commercial palm oil is produced in Southeast Asia, the home of many wild cats and other species. Some companies farm palm oil in ways that are deforestation-free. Stop by our Tiger Truck during Wild Cat Weekend to learn how you can help protect wild cats by urging companies to harvest palm oil in a responsible way. Learn more about responsible palm oil.
