Letter from the Director

Doc and Liger

The Rare Species Fund (RSF) was established in 1982 to provide financial support to on-site wildlife conservation projects and wildlife educational programs around the globe. RSF derives its funding from The Institute for Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S), and from underwriting by philanthropic agencies.
For the past three decades my great joy has been watching the organizations that we support grow and blossom. There is a direct connection between their success and the memorable interactions between visitors to the T.I.G.E.R.S. Preserve and our resident wildlife.
My staff and I invite you to visit us in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and discover for yourself the excitement of helping to preserve these magnificent animals for generations to come. There is something unique about being in the presence of tigers and other beautiful creations of nature. It is an experience that an transform the way you see yourself and the world around you forever!
