“This little guy is one of 17 Spurwing goslings that were recently admitted to our centre that were wondering dangerously along the side of a busy road. Fortunately for this little guy, he and his siblings are now safely recuperating at our centre and will soon be released at much safer and more suitable location”
The latest arrivals at the Wildlife Rehabilitation centre in South Africa (http://www.travellersworldwide.com/08c-south-africa/08-sa-crow.htm) are these little gener siblings, Sasha, Khumba and Timon. They are orphans and were brought in by a member of the public and will be hand reared by the centre’s clinic nurse. They are doing well and scoffing down their bottle feeds. We will keep you updated on their progress
New arrival at the Wildlife Rehabilitation center! The cutest little thing ever! “Meet Blue Bell, a baby Vervet Monkey who was admitted to the wildlife rehabilitation centre earlier this week. Only a day-old, little Blue Bell is sadly the first of what is sure to be, many orphaned and displaced baby Vervets monkeys that will inevitably make their way to our centre this spring “
The Wildlife Rehabilitation team are delighted to report that this Water Mongoose was recently released back into the wild following some intensive rehabilitation and treatment here at the clinic. It was initially very touch and go, but we were thankfully able to save this little girl’s hind legs after she sustained some severe injuries during a dog attack
“Meet little “Fielies”, a two-week old baby Vervet Monkey that was recently admitted to the centre. The first few days at the centre are often the most difficult time for their new patients as they have to settle in and adjust to their new routines, however little Fielies is having no such problems and has quickly made friends with his adoptive sister, Poppy… and his new blanket"
”Meet Toby, a two week-old Large Spotted Genet that was admitted to our centre this week by a caring member of the public. Weighing in at a mere 200 grams, Toby, the orphaned genet is now under the intensive care of Clinic Nurse, Kelly whose duties include giving Toby his two-hourly bottle feeds 24 hours a day. Toby has a long road ahead of him, but should all go as planned, he will be ready for release in March 2014. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on young Toby’s progress!”

Unbelievable animal fact! A Dassie (otherwise known as a Rock Hyrax) as seen at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre volunteer placement in South Africa (http://www.travellersworldwide.com/08c-south-africa/08-sa-crow.htm). Did you know that despite them looking rather like a guinea pig, they are actually more closely related to elephants, dugongs and manatees?
