The Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) is a non-profit organisation that prides itself in taking care of South Africa's indigenous wildlife, both injured and orphaned. CROW is based in Yellowwood Park, and is a wildlife hospital and rehabilitation centre in Kwa Zulu Natal and release these animals back into the wild. CROW has approximately 600 animals under its care at any given time, all of which are wildlife indigenous to Natal, from birds and mammals to raptors and reptiles, and many primates. Their main objective is to rescue, rehabilitate and release these animals either back into the wild, or into sanctuaries. All wildlife indigenous to Natal is welcome at CROW. They have a very large selection of animals under their care, ranging from vervet monkeys, to tortoises, antelope, birds of prey, small and large carnivores, a variety of species of garden birds, crocodiles and many more. Volunteers help in the cleaning of cages, feeding and caring for the animals, assisting CROW staff where necessary. Special projects may include: observing animals in the rehabilitation area, building cages, animal releases, etc. No specific skills are required for volunteers. Volunteer are welcome all year round, the peak period is from November to March (baby season). We recommend that you bring old clothes, jeans and t-shirts and sneakers. The work you will be doing will be mostly done outside. In summer (October to April) there is no need to bring a sleeping bag. During winter (May to September), it can get cool so a sleeping bag as extra warmth would be advisable.
