CapeNature Approval and Permits

Towards the end of last year CapeNature (the provincial government’s conservation  authority) approved the longer-term care sanctuary for the following animals:

Duiker, blue duiker, Cape  grysbok, steenbok, grey rhebok, bushbuck, klipspringer, mongoose (banded, Cape grey), porcupine, bat-eared fox, scrub and Cape hare, caracal, black-backed jackal, and tortoises (indigenous to the Western Cape.

Primates, namely baboons and monkeys, are approved from captive institutions to be cared for long-term.

The rehabilitation facility was approved for most species including those mentioned above, however restricted for primates to immediate care, and immediate return to their group in the wild.
