Until recently, the rule in Tanzania was to leave injured wild animals to nature and thus to their own fate. Nowadays, however, more and more wild animals are injured by human intervention, e.g. when crossing roads or because humans and animals suddenly have to share the same habitat. Then wild animals find themselves in people’s small farms and are shot there, injured by stones, arrows or spears, or caught in snares (wildlife-human conflict). These animals have a right to medical treatment by law and so we are regularly called by the wildlife authorities to capture animals and treat them.
When this is the case, it means being on the scene as quickly as possible. Minutes can make the difference between life and death. So far, we do not have an equipped rescue car and thus lose valuable time gathering the necessary equipment and loading the car. A specially equipped car could help us save even more lives – unfortunately, we currently lack the financial means to do so. Would you like to support us? Read more about it under Project Support.
