We have partnered with the Tikki Hywood Foundation to help establish a small rehabilitation facility in the Northern Cape province of South Africa for pangolins rescued from electric fencing – a common feature on game and livestock farms in the region.
The facility is run by veterinary nurse Machel van Niekerk, who volunteers her time and expertise but needs financial support to cover some of her hard costs. These include building a larger enclosure to house pangolins during their rehabilitation; petrol to drive within a 100km radius of the farm to collect rescued pangolins; travelling 250km to the nearby town of Upington for veterinary consultations, medicine and feeding tubes; facilitating informative workshops with local farmers to encourage their support of the project; and DNA testing on deceased animals.
Every Rand we receive will help lessen her expenses. Our goal is to raise R60,000 per year to enable her to continue this critical work in this very remote part of the country.
