A Message from Tippi Hedren

To all of our Shambala supporters,

To all of you who care about, and love the Wild Ones of Shambala, please know the fires that threaten all of us in California have not come close to The Preserve, as of this date, December 7, 2017, for which we are extremely grateful!…..Chris Gallucci and the Shambala Staff have prepared the Preserve to keep all of us, animal and human as safe as humanly possible…..It is our responsibility to maintain every effort to uphold this responsibility to the magnificent rescued big cats who depend on us for their safety, their health, and the best quality of life they could have in captivity.

Thank you, all of you who have been concerned. Know that we will apprise you if there is any danger to the Wild Ones of Shambala, and us humans from this extreme brutality from Mother Nature.   Thank you for caring and thinking about us in this very dangerous time.  

With love for the animals, everywhere!!!!

Tippi Hedren

Shambala had perfect weather for the September Sunset Safari which was the last one for this season. The Wild Ones were viewable on the tour which everyone enjoyed. During dinner, the guests were treated to an amazing lightning show in the cumulous clouds to the northeast. They literally flickered for over an hour.

He was accompanied by his wife Laurie Stewart.  During the Q&A Peter had many stories to tell of the guests that appeared on his show. As always, Tippi entertained one and all with stories of her life and Shambala.
