Wildlife Orphanage

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.

Our goal is to give the orphans the survival skills needed, without undue human contact, so  that they can return to the wild when the time comes.

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.

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 »

Wildlife Sanctuary

Provide a Sanctuary for Wildlife

Support the Khola campaign goalsIt has been well documented that during the past 15 years, the population of large numbers of mammals outside of parks and game reserves has decreased dramatically.

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.
