SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary South Africa Charity Profile
In a bold attempt in 1998 to secure the animals’ future that she had already saved, Louise signed a lease contract for a 960-hectare piece of land with the option to purchase it at a later stage. The small property on which the rehabilitation centre started was sold and the funds used to establish a small rehab centre on the larger property. In 2000, she founded the SanWild Wildlife Trust, a non-profit organisation whose main objective would be to raise funds to pay for the land, rescue injured and orphaned wild animals and to secure the animals’ long-term welfare and safety. For the first time in South African history, a wildlife reserve was being established that belonged to the wild animals themselves.
SanWild Wildlife Sanctuary South Africa Volunteer Information
From time to time, the opportunity might arise for SanWild to appoint long-term volunteers that serve a specific purpose like administrative posts, fundraising executives, research assistants, special project coordinators or field rangers. These opportunities are very limited and we have a special protocol for appointing such individuals. No remuneration is paid, but accommodation and food is free.
At the moment, we have some volunteer placement opportunities available for long-term volunteers from January 2009:
Public liaison and fund raising – 3 months
Administrative assistant - 3 months
Builder – project specific for rehab units and general repairs to rehab centre – 3 months.
