    this seems like a good summary of the place (the website looks like an anti-zoo/captivity site but not sure - whatever, I agree with them if this is the sort of place they go after): Black Jaguar White Tiger | 911 Animal Abuse

    i follow them on Instagram and they seem to be a rescue organisation that doesn't breed but takes in many many big cats. They appear to be kept in decent sized enclosures but usually in mixed groups of lions tigers leopards and jaguars which makes it interesting - with lots of human interaction also.

    Eh, a lot of aspects of the place are sketchy. They don't always say where they get their animals, and it's incredibly suspicious that they have so many "rescued" cubs. (they're at the most valuable at that age, how many people would give them up to a sanctuary?) They also allow the animals to breed, (unless they changed that recently) which a legitimate sanctuary wouldn't do. Cub petting is also not a good idea. Plus I think these kinds of cutesy interaction videos promote the idea that big cats make good pets, which of course, encourages the pet trade that harms these animals. BJWT might be legitimately well-meaning, but there are a lot of problems with it.
