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.
It is essential that we protect our wildlife from poaching and hunting. One might understand the terrible “need” if it was driving by hunger for the poverty-stricken table, but in most cases, it’s because of the bush-meat trade or other profit-driven reason.
If things carry on as they are now, there won’t be any wildlife left to see. This needs to stop.
KHOLA is the Zulu word for Believe.

Below is a copy of the letter that Janet sent to a friend about this tragic event. Further down, you can also read the letter about little KHOLA, the foal that was born after Old Boy’s death. Khola is the inspiration behind the KHOLA Sponsor Ad Campagin. Read the rest of this entry »
Provide a Sanctuary for Wildlife
Illegal hunting, the bushmeat trade, expansion of agriculture and urban settlements are the main causes of this trend.
Our aim is to provide a safe haven where wildlife is protected from being utilised as a resource for the meat trade, hunting or breeding.
From huge to small, rare and endangered species enjoy our protection.
A varied selection of animal species (including 8 red data species) are found here. Suni-Ridge Sand Forest Park Environmental Rehabilitation Centre is named in honour of the diminutive Suni Antelope that is found in our sand forest.
Thanks to your generous support, Suni-Ridge is able to provide a wildlife sanctuary, protect the amazing biodiversity in our region, and to increase the awareness among local communitities of the importance to preserve and protect the environment and their natural heritage.
