Thula Thula has shown its involvement and commitment in wildlife protection and conservation, together with the local communities since its opening in 1998, including cooperation on skill development and training of young people in conservation and hospitality from the surrounding communities. “We are honoured to have the five Amakhosi from the Fundimvelo Conservation Community Trust as our partners as land owners of the Fundimvelo reserve in this new venture, which will allow us to carry on the legacy started by my late husband Lawrence Anthony in matters of community involvement,” said Mrs Francoise Malby Anthony, Managing Director of Thula Thula Game Reserve.
“We are truly privileged to be in partnership with the animal welfare organisation FOUR PAWS, whose commitment to rescue and save wildlife at international level is well known. LIONSROCK Big Cat Sanctuary, in the Free State, created and owned by FOUR PAWS, is a magnificent example of Big Cat rescues from zoos and circuses from all around the world.” Continued Francoise Anthony.
With the ever increasing threat to wildlife worldwide, security for any facility is always a high priority and the Thula Thula Wildlife Rehab Centre has been geared to address these criminal, yet inevitable attacks on innocent creatures.
A professional team of animal caretakers, well trained, experienced and passionate have been tasked with caring for the daily needs of wounded or orphaned animals at the centre, under the guidance of local wildlife veterinarians.
