The Tortoise Project

Some VERY exciting news. A Rocha South Africa and Free Me Wildlife have teamed up for this project which is an amazing collaborative movement in setting an ethical and legal release protocol in place for the responsible rehabilitation of indigenous Tortoises in KZN.

Free Me Wildlife invested four years in developing this process and are not far off setting this into play. This process has involved numerous conservation authorities and specialists and now with A Rocha teaming up in assisting us with indigenous gardens for food and the development of a specialized rehabilitation and release enclosures, there are no limits…

Working together to enrich lives. FreeMe Wildlife, at its core, is a non-profit organisation that rescues and rehabilitates injured and abandoned indigenous wildlife until they are well enough to be released. All treatment of wildlife at the FreeMe KZN Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is free of charge and they rely solely on the support of our community and corporate sponsors to fund the center.
