Welcome to CROW
Founded 35 years ago, CROW (Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife) was one of South Africa’s first dedicated wildlife rehabilitation centres. Today, CROW is still KwaZulu-Natal’s only registered wildlife rehabilitation centre dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of all indigenous wildlife found in KwaZulu-Natal.
2015 Calendar Campaign Funds New Vehicle for CROW
On Friday the 13th March 2015, CROW was presented with a brand new utility bakkie thanks to the proceeds raised from the 2015 “Born Free” calendar campaign. The new vehicle will be used by CROW to carry out wildlife rescues and releases across KZN and to deliver its Wildlife Warriors Environmental Education programme to disadvantaged children living in rural areas surrounding Durban.
Speaking at the vehicle handover ceremony, CROW’s Director, Claire Hodgkinson expressed her team’s thanks and appreciation to Under an African Sky, its associated sponsors and all the companies and members of the public that had contributed to the success of the campaign by purchasing one of the 2015 calendars. “This calendar campaign is a fantastic example of how local companies and anyone who is passionate about wildlife conservation, can help to make a tangible difference. With our centre currently receiving up to 20 rescue calls from across the province per day, this vehicle could not have come at a better time.”
For the fourth year in a row, CROW has been the beneficiary of this nationwide calendar campaign that is run by Under an African Sky. Founded by Compass Waste Services, this Durban-based voluntary association is committed to raising much needed funds for animal welfare and wildlife conservation in South Africa.

CROW Celebrates 35 years
2015 is a momentous occasion for all those who have been a part of, or supported CROW since its inception. This year marks 35 years of dedicated service by CROW to all the indigenous wildlife throughout the KZN province. Since 1980, over 100 000 injured, orphaned or displaced wild animals have been admitted to the CROW clinic, where they were given a second chance at life. We would not be where we are today without the incredible support we have received from so many generous members of the public. From all the staff we’ve had over the years and all the patients that have come in and out of our centre, thank you for your support!
We will be holding numerous events throughout the year to celebrate the past 35 years. Please feel free to join our mailing list so you don’t miss out on the festivities. You can join here – http://crowkzn.co.za/news-events/
