We believe that the values of kindness, respect and compassion are nurtured through practical dog training classes where children can develop an affectionate bond with their dog. By changing children’s attitudes and emotional response towards the dogs, we are investing in the future and not just applying a “band-aid” approach to animal welfare. These children will become agents of change and role models of responsible, caring dog owners in their communities, in addition to their benefitting in a number of psycho-social ways through the various programs we offer.
The Monkey Helpline, started in 1995, is a volunteer group, based in Westville near Durban in KwaZulu-Natal, but operating throughout the province and also anywhere else in South Africa and abroad where our assistance and advice are requested. Our team of dedicated rescuers and rescue assistants, veterinarians, educators, monitors, fund-raisers, administrative assistants and supporters is what makes this project the success that it is today. We devote our time to educating people about the reasons why the monkeys are here, why monkeys behave the way they do, the things people should do or not do when monkeys are around, and how to humanely keep monkeys away from those places where they are not welcome. Just knowing that monkeys will NOT attack and bite people.
Founded over 30 years ago, CROW (Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife) was one of South Africa’s first dedicated wildlife rehabilitation centres. Today, CROW is still Durban’s only registered wildlife rehabilitation centre dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of all indigenous wildlife found in KwaZulu-Natal.
Run by a small, yet highly dedicated and experienced team of staff and volunteers, CROW assists over 3000 orphaned, injured and displaced animals every year. From mongoose, genets and monkeys to birds, reptiles and antelope, CROW represents a second chance at a free, safe and sustainable life for all wild animals in distress.
As a registered non-profit organisation, CROW relies solely on the support and goodwill of the public both locally and internationally to ensure the doors to its centre remain open 365 days a year.
As one of South Africa’s leading wildlife rehabilitation centres and a proud member of the IWRC (International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council), CROW strives to improve the quality of wildlife rehabilitation in South Africa and to uphold the code of ethics adopted by professional wildlife rehabilitation practitioners around the world.
We have a particular love and interest for all people and things creative, how they are made, their beauty and their function. We exist to treasure, share and inspire.
