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 / 2016 Primate Internships at CROW

Applications for CROW’s new Primate Internship Programme are now open.

CROW is looking for hard working and committed individuals who preferably have some previous training and or experience in working with primates. However, first and foremost, we are looking for interns who are passionate and have a respect for animals and at the end of the day, want to help give wild animals a second chance at living a free and safe life back in the wild.

Interns will assist CROW’s Primate Manager and Clinic team with the care and rehabilitation of injured and orphaned primates and the day-to-day running of the centre. In addition, interns will have the opportunity to assist with primate rescues, releases, enrichment and research programmes.

CROW Celebrates its 35th Anniversary in Style!

Over 270 guests attended CROW’s 35th Anniversary Gala Dinner at the Elangeni Hotel on Thursday evening, the 25th June 2015. Thanks to the support of title sponsors, Grindrod Bank and The Leigh Group, the black tie event served to commemorate CROW’s 35 years of dedicated service to KZN’s wildlife. An incredible R212 000 was also raised for CROW’s ongoing work on the evening through an auction conducted by Ian Wyles of Ian Wyles Auctioneers and the sale of mystery envelope prizes.

In addition to welcome drinks and a delicious 3 course dinner, guests were treated to performances by some of Durban’s top entertainers, including Marion Loudon & Lisa Bobbert of The Glitter Girls, Beat-Route Jazz Band and the Vuka Drummers. The event’s décor was proudly sponsored by Lemontree Concepts, while the evening’s programme was overseen by Nadine Oberholzer of Lèventus.

TV Presenter, Camilla Hartmann was the MC for the evening, while Craig McIntosh delivered a heartfelt key note address that highlighted the increasing need for CROW’s wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release services.
