An urgent appeal to all who care: Please support our drought relief appeal 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.
Any amount however big or small towards feeding the wildlife at our Sanctuary would be greatly appreciated. Please click below to donate 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!
We had a 5 day battle in our Sanctuary, to save a baby wildebeest (featured as newborn, in the video ” Hello World”) Sadly he was injured when he and his friend also a little bull, were forced out of the breeding herd by the territorial bull.
Sadly although we tried our best to help him, eventually having to place him in a boma for treatment, he did not make it. We would like to thank all for their support and especially for the expertise and support of Louise Joubert & SanWild and Mike Toft, our excellent wildlife vet.
Conservation and the protection of biodiversity is of the utmost importance to Janet and Rob Cuthbertson. Suni-Ridge Sand Forest Park Environmental Rehabilitation Centre was established to expand Janet and Rob’s focus of environmental concern into the surrounding area and local communities.

Animal rescue centre and wildlife orphanage.
Currently, many orphaned wild animals are left for “nature to take care of herself”, which means that any baby wild animal will surely die being unable to fend for itself.
There is a dire need in Maputaland for an animal rescue centre/ wildlife orphanage. Due to the encouragement and support of numerous organisations, Suni-Ridge Sand Forest Park is presently establishing a facility that will provide a haven for rescued and orphaned animals.
The project will form part of a community outreach program that will encourage awareness about the humane management of domestic animals. While facilitating the rescue of wildlife orphans, it will also facilitate support for domestic animal needs within the rural area.
During 1991 Janet and Rob Cuthbertson purchased a rundown pineapple farm, which today has been rehabilitated into a beautiful and flourishing wildlife reserve.
Our years of effort have at times been exciting, rewarding and often the challenge has been daunting, but the knowledge that we are giving something back to nature is our most worthwhile reward”. ~ Janet and Rob Cuthbertson
