Hartebeest

Blesbok

Sponsor our Hartebeest. He was initially sold to a private individual by roadside poachers, who sought to exploit him for muti trade. When CROW received the rescue call for this Hartebeest, they discovered him in a state of distress, bearing a wound on his forehead and severely dehydrated. Thanks to CROW, the Hartebeest is now in the hands of our nurse, who will be hand rearing him with goat milk for the upcoming 5 months.

Genets

Sponsor our 3 Genets. Genets are primarily solitary animals that are active during the night, but these three were brought in together, as they were abandoned by their mother. They have excellent night vision and are skilled hunters. Their diet consists of a variety of prey, including small mammals, birds, reptiles, insects, and fruits. Genets have sharp claws and a long, slender body, which allows them to navigate through tree branches with ease.

Grey Duiker

grey duiker

Meet our Grey Duiker, who was brought in at CROW after tragically losing her mother to hunter dogs. Currently staying in H block within one of our small camps, she will remain under the caring eye of Zoe, until she reaches the age of seven months and can be released back into the wild. She is currently on Blossom milk formula, but will move onto feeding on hibiscus, mulberry, fig and basically any edible trees and grass in the near future.

Vervet monkey

Sponsor our 13 vervet monkey babies. A few lost their mothers in the wild, and another was being attacked by bird of prey. The little ones will be introduced soon to two others, a mother and a baby, with the intention to form a troop and being released altogether. Within a troop, there is a complex social structure involving dominance hierarchies and various social interactions, and therefore the rehabilitation takes 3 – 4 years.

Dassie

Sponsor our Dassies. One of the little ones was found in a car engine, where the local SPCA rescued and handed it over to CROW. They primarily feed on plant material, including leaves, fruits, and bark. They have specialized teeth for grinding tough vegetation. Dassies are known for their sunbathing behaviour. They often bask in the sun, lying on rocks or ledges with their bellies exposed to soak up warmth.
