Felidae has a few new projects that we want to begin within the year. We have chosen the project with the most importance at this time and we need your assistance! This is the project we would like to start:
Our wild lion pride consists of 5 lions that are calm with people around them and 5 lions that are more comfortable without any human contact. The last 5 were raised in the pride by the other lions. We are currently looking for funding to build a 200 ha enclosure for this pride. Here they can learn to survive without human interaction and people constantly being around them.
We will provide tours in safari vehicles to this enclosure during our tours. The larger enclosure will give the lions the opportunity to decide want to meet up with people or rather relax under a tree.
This project will cost roughly R400 000.00 - every rand toward this can help us to get these lions quicker into a bigger and more natural area.
As we are a non-profit organization which strives to keep the animals healthy and happy we need your help with the following items:
With about 20 animals that get food daily out of these bowls we need to make sure they are hygienically clean and not broken.
Our Bat-eared fox family live mostly on the pellets and they refuse to eat anything els than Montego.
We are a home to 2 vervet monkeys which is getting a very healthy bowl of food twice a day. This consist only of fresh vegetables and fruits.
Almost all our animals on the farm only eat meat which make the meat quantity a month quite high. These animals only get fresh food and most is being fed daily. For any dead animals please phone as we will come and collect it.
We need big quantity of whole chicken and body parts of chicken such as chicken legs, heads, necks, drum sticks, wings and liver. These are mainly use to balance our the calcium in our animals with the meat carcasses and helping the animals building up a healthy and strong bone system.
Items like cement, bricks, wooden poles, wire etc. We are currently busy in rebuilding and enlarging all our enclosures and we need these stuff to make it save and special to each species.
Spade/Shovels, Rake, Wooden saws, Scissors, Garden forks, Wheelbarrows. This is so keep enclosures clean and neat.
Electrical equipment like hand drills, screwdrivers, hammers, screwdrivers, plyers, drill bits etc.
Knives, small axes, cutting boards, electrical scales, meat saw, cleaning equipment (cloths, steel-wool etc) etc. As we work daily and everything neat to be hygienically we need good equipment to ensure safety of workers.
Syringes (5ml, 10 ml, 20 ml), needles, thermometer, stethoscope.
Tree logs, play toys for animals (predator proof), fire buckets.
OK so you don't actually get to take the animal home (which would be risky for obvious reasons), but you do receive a certificate and are more than welcome to visit your adopted bundle of fur anytime! A regular update of your adopted animal will be sent to you as well via email or phone.
