"BigCatDerek" is a social media star, promoting a message of animal care and conservation through the Internet. He's also an Operations Director for the Center for Animal Research and Education (CARE), a non-profit big cat sanctuary in Texas.

Derek has put effort into getting to know these large cats on a personal level, and he wants the world to share in that relationship through videos of their day-to-day lives. Check out his latest Vine of a gorgeous tiger getting up close and personal with the cameras below!
