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. For more information on Under an African Sky, please see their website.
