Weʼve raised £405 to Helping to re-home 13 Lions, Ligers and Tigers coming from a closed down zoo in South Africa
- Johannesburg, South Africa
- Funded on Sunday, 17th February 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Ubuntu offers an experience of a lifetime where you get to work with animals of all shapes and sizes.
This sanctuary was set up not only to rehabilitate animals and release them back into the wild but also to change people perceptions of what they think they know about animals.
Starting as a rehab centre Ubuntu quickly grew into South Africa's well known and respected centres, where they educate locals schools on animal breeds, becoming ECO aware and how to take care of animals that have been injured or be able to respond correctly when they find themselves in a situation with an injured animal.
They are now allowing an experience of a lifetime and involving volunteers to build phase 2 of Ubuntu to rehome 7 Big Cats coming in from Argentina... They quite literally have no where to go and we are building them a sanctuary near Johannesburg!
Key pillars that you will help us achieve:
**Establish a Rescue and Rehabilitation sanctuary for injured or sick wildlife species in need of urgent professional emergency medical care (rhino, elephant and other wildlife species).
**Establish a sanctuary for captive bred large predators rescued from zoo`s and wildlife parks in South Africa and internationally.
**Establish a Cheetah rewilding and breeding program for cheetahs to be released in Private and National Reserves in South Africa.
**Establish a program for the protection of the African Wild Dog in conjunction with the Wild Dog Action Group and other bona fide African Wild Dog conservation organisations.
**Establish breeding projects for white and black rhinoceros sub species with the aim of protecting these sub species from extinction.
**Establish temporary holding facilities for rescued problem predators such as leopards etc. to be released in pre identified safe reserves.
**To assist with the establishing of wildlife sanctuaries internationally to place wildlife species in need of urgent rescue.
**To establish an internationally recognised wildlife foundation to assist other bona fide wildlife rescue organisations in all matters relevant to the rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife species.
