Conserving and caring for wildlife is something we can all take part in. “One is never too young or too old to start caring, because what happens to our environment ultimately affects what happens to us,” says SPCA Wildlife Supervisor, Inspector Jon Friedman.
Jon and his colleagues respond to about 330 wildlife-related emergencies a month. In October 2022, they delivered a series of insightful talks to audiences from youth camps to retirement villages regarding the urgent need for all South Africans to get involved in wildlife conservation. We share our homes and natural spaces with wonderful wildlife and we can all help in some way.
