"The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man." - Charles Darwin
Adopt An Animal
The Naankuse Foundation Wildlife Sanctuary is not species-specific, any animal from the wild in need of a second chance being welcomed with open arms. Release once rehabilitated is the ideal outcome. However, this is not always possible. Some animals are simply too habituated to humans, significantly reducing their survival chances if they were to embrace freedom.
For a nominal fee per year, you can symbolically adopt a sanctuary animal. You’ll receive a personalised certificate with a photo of your adopted darling, and an annual update on who is sure to become your favourite family member.
Captive animal care comes with immense responsibility. Both physical and mental needs must be met in a manner best befitting the species concerned.
Exotic animal trade, exploiting animals purely for commercial gain and cruel practices that contradict the principles of animal welfare, fiercely contravene the foundation’s stringent ethics.
A correct and measured diet, enrichment activities and ample space are just some of the ingredients creating an ethical and compassionate recipe for animal care.
For The Love of Animals
The dedication of the Naankuse team ensures that all captive animals live a life most suited to their natural behaviour, while at the same time receiving the constant care they so deserve.
Breeding in captivity is not only prohibited by law in Namibia but fits perfectly into the values of the Naankuse Foundation.
