Welcome back! DAKTARI has been hard at work with the children and animals.
We've recently received an Owl brought into camp last week which was soon to be euthanised, which now has a happy, loving home here at DAKTARI.
All your generous donations and support over the years has really helped us develop a strong base in the community for animal rehabiliation, rescue and build on our wildlife orphanage.
Many times over the year we will received phone calls from other organisations and people in the area that have animals they can't afford to look after/don't have the expertises to care for or don't have the quality time to spend on these unfournate animals.
At DAKTARI we specialise in these cases and we appreciate all your support in letting us continue our mission. Your donations enable us to feed our animals and to care for them on a daily basis.
We’re trying a whole new approach to fundraising! On GlobalGiving we’re adding new projects on our donation page for specific individual animals for better exposure.
A couple of animals have been added to the fold, a bush pig called Molly who’s a friendly, inquisitive girl with a bubbly attitude has been trotting around the camp. We’ve also got 2 new Meerkats that are making friends and getting a sun tan!
DAKTARI has installed a new safety cage for our Owls and the wildlife manager Willington has been experimenting with the Meerkat enclosures, previously we had a specific type of soil that we would use, the Meerkats would sometimes tunnel down and through into other enclosures, Willington has spent 2 weeks removing the soil and using a new type of dirt that fills in on itself when you disturb it, this gives the Meerkats plenty of exercise but leaves us stress free.
Two future projects? Ok!
We’re potentially receiving a Lion! DAKTARI is currently trying to help a local rehabilitation centre, currently we’re securing a quotation for a new predatory enclosure to house him.
The Jackals have been moved to a separate area for inevitable release outside of camp to get them used to limited human contact.
