Thank you all for your support! With Covid-19 and lockdown, we continue to work tirelessly to maintain and protect the biodiversity of our Sanctuary, and most importantly we continue to provide the very best care for every animal that calls our Sanctuary home!
Your support of our medical fund has been greatly appreciated. It has helped with the following:
To treat “Short Tail” the wildebeest who’s injured foot became badly infected. Should he not have been treated, we would have had to euthanize him to prevent him from suffering an agonizing death. After his treatment, his wound is healing slowly, but each day we see an improvement.
A tragic event happened recently when we had a dreadful insurgence with poachers that set up many snares in the bush. We were able to cut the wire noose from both a mother wildebeest and her calf, but sadly we eventually had to bring in help to euthanize the mother as she had succumbed to stress that caused paralysis. The little female calf survived but she called incessantly for her mother for days. She is now doing well again and grazing with the zebra and the territorial wildebeest bull that is her father. We are taking urgent steps to upgrade our security and need all the support possible for this.
Recently we have experienced a very dry time and we have been supplementing our animal’s grazing with wildlife pellets. Although we feel that they are being "spoilt" (apart from injured Short Tail who needs to uphold his best immunity) we feel this is ok as we like to know that all our wildlife are settled and doing well during the sudden cold spell that we are now experiencing in our area.
Thank you once again for your support and wishing you the very best health and safety.
