CACH Goes Wild In The Klein Karoo – South Africa
Chris Mercer and Bev Pervan – The Karoo Wildlife Centre
CACH Goes Wild In The Klein Karoo – South Africa – I have great admiration for people who see a need – decide they can help and then step up and make that dream a reality. Chris and Bev have worked tirelessly for years to protect wild lions through their world renowned organization CACH – Campaign Against Canned Hunting. Now they have taken their work an exciting step further and are developing a wildlife rescue centre and sanctuary.
Just imagine spending your next holiday with them!
Animal advocacy is crucial.
Raising awareness is vital.
Working for change at a policy level is essential.
But WE can do more!
CACH evolved through wildlife rescue. Now CACH is going back to its roots. We have purchased 175 hectares in the Klein Karoo near Ladismith. Here with your help – we will establish an iconic wildlife rescue centre and sanctuary for all the orphaned and injured animals that are endemic to the area. The animals are mostly small mammals and birds. We expect – meerkats, foxes, porcupines, jackals, caracals. Leopard and baboons are around but it will be some time before we have infrastructure for that.
