Centre For Rehabilitation Of Wildlife
We are situated in Yellowwood Park, Durban. It is a wildlife hospital that cares for the injured and orphaned wild animals and birds in Kwazulu Natal. CROW has 12 depots in and around the Province and is considered to be one of the leading rehabilitation Centers in South Africa.
Almost 90% of animals admitted to CROW, have sustained injuries due to human negligence. It takes time and dedication to rehabilitate these animals and to prepare them to be re-introduced in their natural environment. Some animals' injuries are so severe that they cannot be rehabilitated and therefore become permanent residents at CROW. Animals that are currently being rehabilitated are placed in enclosures far away from human activity. We try to create enclosures that are similar to their natural environment to give them a "feel" of what their world is like. Orphaned antelope are often only released in Nature Reserves, where there are no predators, as they do not know what a predator is.
An increasing amount of time is being spent on the Educational aspects of Wildlife Conservation, and CROW has developed a program which is informative, fun and encourages interaction with the students. A variety of programs exist, to cater for various age groups, and our Educational Officers will make sure that when you visit, the content of the day is age-appropriate. Children are introduced to CROW and what it stands for, and then, depending on the size of the group, they are taken on a guided tour before spending time in the Educational Centre learning about skulls and bones and teeth. Worksheets are used here and children are encouraged to participate and document what they have learned.
To be an independent, pioneering force in the protection and rehabilitation of orphaned and injured wildlife, while promoting the preservation of their natural habitat.
