Crag’s View Wild Care Centre

Crag’s View Wild Care Centre, situated on Crag’s View farm, Port Edward, is the only official wildlife rehabilitation centre serving the lower south coast region, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN).
 
The core function of the Centre is to attempt to rehabilitate and release as many animals and birds as possible that have sustained injuries and stress due to mainly human influence.  Patients include antelope, from the protected blue duiker to bush buck, as well as a variety of birds and small mammals indigenous to our area.
 
Our current and most pressing goal is to build improved and appropriate care areas for animals and birds in an attempt to simulate their natural environments.

Crags View Wild Care Centre is registered as a section 21 company not-for-gain 2001/030135/08 under the title ‘Beri’ah Wildlife Orphans Fund’. It is also a registered NPO (030-565) and NGO affiliated with Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife.
