Help Us help them button for Covid Relief

The Covid-19 Pandemic has left us without our prime source of funding.  Despite this, a small team of dedicated staff are on-site to care for the animals of Tenikwa, and to admit wildlife in need of rehabilitation during this period. 

We have come up with several ways in which you can help us care for the animals.  Any financial support, no matter how small during this trying time, would be greatly appreciated, so that we can continue being there for our wildlife.

Donate to help feed Digger the warthog during Covid

This is Digger. He is a resident Warthog that came to us as a confiscated, illegal pet. He eats a lot, loves his mud pool and has a best friend that’s a goat, Mildred. Your R 35.00 donation buys a days worth of dry rations for him and his best friend. Thank you for your support!

Donate to help feed penguins in rehabilitation during Covid

Our penguins are a story of joy and hope. In the last two years, in conjunction with our Conservation partners, we have successfully released 11 batches of rehabilitated penguins even during lockdown!

Your donation here will buy 5kg of sardines that will feed our current batch of penguins in rehabilitation for 2 days!

Donate towards rehabilitation during Covid

Our rehabilitation facility currently has 11 animals requiring food, health care, medication and special treatment. Your donation here helps us to help them. Our main goal is to release these animals back into the wild in safe places, away from human interference and in a healthy condition that improves their chances of survival. Thank you for your support!

Donate to help feed Zwe the leopard during Covid

A firm favorite among visitors is our male Leopard, Swelake, (pronounced Zwee-laa-key). He is fed daily and often we can hear him “pant-grunting” as we go about our daily business. Leopards are highly valued in illegal trade and we are very fortunate to have Zwe safe and sound with us at Tenikwa. Donate now towards his care.

Since Lockdown in March 2020, we have seen an increase in victims of the bushmeat crisis.  As hunger sweeps our country, the poorest of the community turn to our wildlife as a source of food.  The endearing Cape Grysbok is often a victim of these snares. Please help us by sponsoring the milk costs of orphanned grysbokkies in rehab currently.  Thank you for your support!

 

Donate to help feed Duma during Covid Button

This is Duma. He is an older boy now going on 12 years old! He currently eats about 3kg of food a day. He has specially prepared meals, he has fresh chickens that are skinned, have hard bones removed and specially prepped for his aging requirements. Your Donation buys his food for the day. Thank you for your support!

Donate to help feed meerkats during Covid

Meerkats are often considered to be good “pet” animals. This is not the case. They have highly developed social structures and need large family groups and lots of space to survive. For this reason we receive a LOT of meerkats. Your donation here helps to feed our Meerkat families for the day.

Donate to help feed lions during Covid

This is our king of Tenikwa, MKulu. He lives at Tenikwa with his sister, Kaluma.  Lions have always captured peoples’ imaginations and he helps us to educate our guests about the plight of lions in Africa. He eats on average 4Kg of food a day. Your donation helps relieve a large part of the costs in feeding and in turn helps drive more funds to our rehab program.

Help us to manage our rehabilitation costs by donating a small sum of money each month through PayPal. Sponsor a kennel in our High Care area.
