CAPE TOWN FIRE EMERGENCY RESPONSE FOR ANIMALS

CAPE TOWN FIRE EMERGENCY RESPONSE FOR ANIMALS

Personal message

On the morning of the 18th of April 2021, a vegetation fire broke out in Cape Town, South Africa. The blaze quickly spread towards the University of Cape Town (UCT), causing the evacuation of all students.

The Cape of Good Hope has Inspectors at the site of the fire and stationed at the Disaster Operation Centre in Goodwood forming part of the disaster risk management team.  

It is too dangerous for us to enter the area right now so we are monitoring the periphery for any animals fleeing the flames and we are deeply concerned for those who may be trapped in the inferno as well as those lying injured which we have been unable to reach.

As soon as we can, we will be combing the fire-ravaged areas for any injured animals who will be brought back to our short-term wildlife care facility for treatment.

With this campaign, we are hoping to save animals' lives and help preserve Cape Town's wildlife. The area is rife with dassies, birdlife, porcupines, tortoises, grysbok, snakes, frogs, and many other species who will need our help.

We need you to help us raise funds to reach the animals in need of help, and to purchase the following items for injured animals:

-Dry and wet dressings

-Cool packs

-Silbecor ointment

-Bandages, and fresh fruit and vegetables for the influx of animal patients we are expecting.
