The South African Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (SAWRC) is a rehabilitation center, permitted by the Department of Nature Conservation to rehabilitate sick, injured and orphaned indigenous wildlife, with the aim of returning them to their natural habitat in a safe environment.
SAWRC was founded by Judy Davidson and Ken Pollard in 2004, and was known as Wildlife in Crisis. The center is now managed by Judy Davidson. Judy has been rehabilitating indigenous wildlife since 1975 and has won numerous awards for her dedication. Judy has worked extensively in the nature conservation arena and has a vast knowledge of the wildlife that is taken into the clinic.
SAWRC is fully permitted by Nature Conservation. This means that along with the required permits to rehabilitate indigenous species, SAWRC is also permitted to take in endangered species listed as "Threatened Or Protected Species" (TOPS PERMITS).
SAWRC takes in cases from all over South Africa, from recognized authorities, Nature Conservation, vets, members of the public and even other Wildlife centers, to give wildlife the best possible care during the duration of their rehabilitation process.
