When it rains in South Africa, it pours! Our habitats are green and lush and our natural wells feeding the residents’ habitats are full, but with more rains than usual this year, WE HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM. Our lion and tiger habitats cover over 60 acres and are connected by almost two miles of internal dirt roads, which are becoming increasingly churned up and on certain days, some are impassable.
Roads may not seem as exciting as flights or new habitats for rescued animals, but they are vital for lifelong feeding and daily care. Without these roads, we will be unable to add habitats to rescue more animals and run the risk of being prevented from getting a sick lion or tiger to hospital during heavy rains.
Will you help us level the roads and lay almost 2 miles of gravel, with bridges and pipes to drive over the seasonal watercourses? This huge project will benefit all the animals in the sanctuary, and future residents, and will cost $45,000 / £33,000.
Every contribution will help, and if you are able to make a substantial donation of $4,000 or more, you will be able to name a road and we will erect a road sign with your chosen name.
BUILD THE ROADS! An anonymous donor has offered a $10,000 matching donation. If we can raise $10,000 it will be doubled, and we will be almost halfway to our target!
