Our role as a rehabilitator is to give the animal a second chance at life. The animal may choose to fight, or give up the will to live. We respect that choice, although sometimes it is very hard to say good-bye.

Two Black-necked gulls where brought to Tenikwa on 31 Aug 2014. They were found on Keurbooms Beach. They were attached to each other with fishing line. One had it wrapped around his wing and the other had 2 fishing hooks stuck in his throat. We had to operate to remove the hooks from his esophagus. They are both recovering well.

This Young Cape Clawless Otter which is approximately 5-8 weeks old was rescued by a local farmer in Titsikamma as she was found abandoned. She arrived late on Wednesday evening and was well looked after by our animal keepers as she was in very critical condition. On Thursday and Friday, we tried to reunite her with her mom and drove out to the locality but it proved to be unsuccessful.

Sooty Shearwaters breed on small islands in the south Pacific and south Atlantic Oceans, mainly around New Zealand, the Falkland Islands, Tierra del Fuego and also in the Auckland Islands and Phillip Island off Norfolk Island. They start breeding in October, and incubate their young for about 54 days.

This Cape Gannet was rescued in Plettenberg Bay as he was found stranded.  His overall condition seemed fine however, slightly dehydrated.  We have successfully transferred him to SANCCOB Eastern Cape.  Did you know: Gannet pairs may remain together over several seasons.  They perform elaborate greeting rituals at the nest, stretching their bills and necks skywards and gently tapping bills together.

Did you know: Apparently according to “Wikipedia”, unique to hyraxes is the dorsal gland, which excretes anodourused for social communication and territorial  marking.
