Welcome to Suni-Ridge Org. ZA!
(Registration no. 013-525 NPO)
Thank you for visiting our website. Suni-Ridge is a non-profit organisation based in Maputaland (Kwazulu Natal) in South Africa.
The world’s natural eco-systems are being degraded at a unprecedented rate and it is no longer sufficient to merely protect that which is left.
At Suni-Ridge we have lovingly restored a previously degraded agricultural area and have given back to nature, a significant section of the buffer zone of the False Bay environs of World Natural Heritage Site, the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, on the North East Coast of South Africa.
One of our most important challenges is to protect the wildlife in/around our reserve, and to prevent poaching.
We provide a flourishing habitat to an abundance of wildlife, including rare and protected species, and are reaching out to the local communities to encourage them to take ownership of the responsibility of protecting this natural heritage.
DROUGHT RELIEF – APPEAL FOR OUR WILDLIFE
Zululand is experiencing the worst drought in 20 years. The entire Province of KZN has been red flagged because of the drought. Rivers have dried up and virtually no rain has fallen during the past months in our area at False Bay Park.
Please help our wildlife with food during the drought. Any amount however big or small towards feeding the wildlife at our Sanctuary would be greatly appreciated. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for our account details or you may click here to send a contribution through PayPal. Thank you for caring!
A bag of game pellets costs R250.00 (18.11 USD)
One bale of Lucerne R105.00 (7.61 USD)
We have been doing our best to help our wildlife through the drought and we have to supplement food for our wildlife in our Sanctuary. There is no longer grazing and very little browsing available. Nyala graze 30% and browse 70% depending on availability of foliage and grass. Wildebeest are bulk grazers and zebra each need 10kg of hay/grass per day. Although we bring in grass from areas where there is no grazing, we now need to supplement this with Lucerne and game pellets. The female antelope that are pregnant especially need more food to tide them through.
Any support you may be able to offer – however big or small – would be greatly appreciated.
THANK YOU FOR CARING!
Young leaders from local communities attend our Young Environmental Ambassador’s Leadership.
Our involvement with local communities also shows them how they can benefit from Eco-tourism and why implementing (or being part of) the Sustainable Use Policy isn’t the right thing to do (see our Khola Campaign).
Please Join Our Efforts
Many people are deeply concerned about the environment and global warming. Some people even contribute to carbon-emission offset programs. Instead, we’re asking you to join our efforts in preserving natural habitat (and bush) and to become part of a sustainable solution for the environmental crisis.
Your support will make a difference to:
- preservation / restoration of indigenous habitat
- ensure the growth of safe havens for wildlife
- help to bring environmental education and awareness to rural communities
