The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre is dependent on donations and sponsorships to maintain its breeding programmes and the various projects undertaken in terms of research, education, relocation and rescuing abandoned and orphaned animals.

Without the support of sponsors, we would cease to exist. So too would the greater cause which we represent.

If you would prefer to simply make a donation instead of using our fostering or adoption platforms, then please complete the form below.

Thank you for your consideration of all the creatures at HESC.

HESC maintains a strict policy of no contact or interaction with animals kept on the property. Our policy is aligned with international trends based on animal ethics and welfare and is aimed at ensuring the safety and health of both animals and visitors. Our policy further endorses the right of animals to live a life without fear, which is often the consequence of close contact with humans with whom they are not acquainted. We avoid human-imprinting, whereby the animals will identify more with humans than with their own species and cause them to become problem animals once released.
