C.A.R.E. about Wildlife
C.A.R.E. (The Centre for Animal Rehabilitation and Education), established over 26 years ago, in 1989 is a rehabilitation centre for our beautiful baboons and other small indigenous wildlife, on the riverside of the Olifants River in Limpopo South Africa.
C.A.R.E., located in the heart of a "Big 5 Nature Reserve" between Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa, bordering the Kruger National Park South Africa, is a wildlife rehabilitation sanctuary dedicated to the care, welfare, rehabilitation and protection of injured and orphaned indigenous wild animals. Featured on Animal Planet, ITV, Carte Blanche and in other media, C.A.R.E. is renowned for the vital, life-saving and pioneering work with wildlife.

C.A.R.E. has been a pioneer in the rehabilitation and release of chacma baboons for over 26 years along with helping other small animals and small birds too.
Freedom is the end goal for all the incredible beings that need our help, but for our dear elderly residents and most psychologically damaged individuals; we offer a permanent home, a sanctuary.
We believe that all animals, no-matter how small or large deserve respect and to live harmoniously with us humans. We pledge that we will help as and when we are called. From the smallest bird, to South Africa's largest primate; the charasmatic and misunderstood baboon, we will help and we care!
We have an extensive wildlife "friends" network to help with transport and welcome all the support and assistance offered.
2017 is set to be a further exciting year at C.A.R.E., with our Veterinary Clinic completed, Education Centre being kitted out, new Volunteer Accommodation and beginning of our Community Outreach projects, we have been busy!
We have just finishing building our brand-new Feed Store and Prep area, with a grant donated by IPPL (The International Primate Protection League) , the support globally makes a big difference to the animals in our care and also local communities of whom we employ a local African staff and also purchase food from local farmers to feed the animals! For more information visit our Blog, Utube Page and Facebook Page.
Volunteers are part of the C.A.R.E. family and integral to the success of the centre. We offer hands-on experience, primate husbandry and rehabilitation training in a Big 5 South African Nature Reserve. Your help is actually needed, especially to provide support for incoming primate orphans.
