The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC) has repositioned to change its core business focus.
HESC is well established worldwide as an important role player in the conservation and breeding of cheetahs and the maintenance and expansion of the already limited gene pool. HESC also plays an active role in the rehabilitation of injured endangered species.
From I July 2021 our core business changed to focus on conservation and rehabilitation activities, while the tourism component of our business (including tours of the facility and accommodation opportunities) was discontinued. The decision to reposition and to refocus became necessary in the current pandemic-stricken economic climate to ensure the financial viability of the Centre and its conservation activities going forward.
HESC will continue to provide research opportunities and will uphold its commitment to the various community support and enhancement activities in its immediate vicinity.
Our fundraising activities have been increased to assist with the financing of the
Centre’s very important and vital activities.
Lente Roode remains the owner and managing director of HESC.
