WILDLIFE RESCUE

The following is a collection of stories, compiled throughout the years, depicting the lives of animals residing at CARACAL. Rescued animals that stay with us become ambassadors for their species and play a pivotal role in the education of local schoolchildren and the general public. The aim here is to enhance understanding of the importance of these animals in healthy ecosystems.

BANDED MONGOOSE

Mungos mungo

As babies, these two brothers were found abandoned amongst some bushes. Although several hours were spent waiting for the mother to return, our team was unable to locate her. Today however, you can find the brothers basking in the sun, right here at CARACAL.

White-Backed vulture

Gyps africanus

Giles is a white-backed vulture who has been staying with us since 2014! He has come a long way from when he first came to us as a young bird with both a broken clavicle and pneumonia.

Bohol bushbaby

Galago moholi

Meet Fungus, one of the many bushbabies at our facility. As a baby, he was brought to us by a concerned member of the community. Bushbabies are highly social animals and so require much one-on-one care.
