Give our Bushpig 'Herbie' a new home
 
We are currently taking care of a pig called Herbie, he is a cross between a bushpig and a domestic pig. He was orphaned and brought to us by a nearby reserve who did not know what to do with him. Unfortunately he is getting bigger now and his enclosure is just not big enough anymore. project reportread updates from the field
Help repair our bakkie!
 
As tends to happen due to the conditions of some of the roads in South Africa, our bakkie (pick-up truck) broke down! The car serves not only as a method of transport for the volunteers, but also provides an essential tool in transporting tools and heavy loads around the farm as well as being the car that the outreach program uses to visit the village as well as the weekly Eco-Club. This project aims to raise the sufficient funds to repair the car, an expense that we cannot afford alone. project reportread updates from the field

Provide food & care for our baby Warthog for 1year
 
Piggy-Piggy arrived at DAKTARI when she was just wee little baby at only 2 weeks old and weighed 600 grams. She lost her mom, sisters and brothers and she was very weak when DAKTARI welcomed her with open arms. We took her to the vet where she received some uplifting treatment. She now enjoys good milk, healthy food and all the loving attention possible from all the members here at DAKTARI. Piggy Pig is sending out a squealing call to you for 500$ to get the food and care she needs and deserve. project reportread updates from the field
