THEY NEED YOU
The Cape’s wildlife are continually under threat. Certain animal species are in conflict with humans, some are exploited for financial gain, threatened by natural disasters and urban sprawl and others, hunted for sport and recreation.
The Cape of Good Hope SPCA Wildlife Department serves a critical role in mitigating this threat by responding to reports of displaced, injured and sick wildlife and investigating reports of cruelty to wild animals. We are committed to our credo that wild animals belong in the wild and our team works to also bring and end to the illegal keeping, import and sale of exotic animals as pets.
INVEST IN WILDLIFE
Albert Einstein once said, ‘Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.’ The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon gives you the opportunity to do just this because all funds raised will be going towards our work with wild animals! Plus you get to do it in this awesome branded running shirt!
