Some areas are still actively burning / smouldering and the ground is so hot, the soles of our Inspectors shoes are melting. Amongst the carnage the Cape Town Fire has left in its wake we have found only one snake that we could save but this first sign of life has given us the hope we needed to continue believing and continue searching.
Our past experience has taught us that wild animals will often return to their area’s of origin, where they had burrows or nests and we are looking out for these animals too whose feet no doubt will burn on the hot ground.
Thanks to you our Wildlife Department is standing by with a fully stocked fridge of fresh fruit and vegetables, cool packs and supplies!
Please continue to keep shallow containers of water in your gardens and keep calling us to report displaced wild animals or animals in distress.
