  • Awesome experience for school children to see how conservation in South Africa is done to help animals that have been injured due to human interference in nature.

Children are taught that they must think about what they do and use and how they can then contribute to helping nature thrive in their habitat so that the animals don't have to live in rehabilitation centers.
