Hallo Darlings!

Welcome to the magic of Wild is Life!

Thank you for being with us and for your interest in our wild lives. The paths we all walk, as individuals, at Wild is Life, are filled with adventure, love, growth, empathy, compassion and optimism. We are not afraid to say that we love the animals in our care.

In these days of fast everything, heads down, phones on and busy businesses, the need for connection to the wild world is ever more important. Our planet is in crisis, yet so many people think that someone else is going to fix it! Not so? It will take each and every person who inhabits this earth, to show compassion, love and a desire to change, before anything meaningful will be achieved.

We aim to inspire conservation, in whatever form that may take. We encourage humans to care about the living world around them and to feel the sentience of wild lives. We provide second chances to those who have no voice. We nurse and cherish the souls who are injured, traumatized, bereft, and heartbroken.

We care about the land, as much as we do about people and animals. The land is fragile too and it is imperative that we protect, conserve and appreciate all she has to offer us. The lives that pass through our hands are truly Wild Gifts… ever precious, always valued.

Your support is always appreciated, whether it be a bottle of milk, a tractor, a uniform, or a lifesaving flight of a little elephant angel! Please do come and see us soon, or connect on social media! We love hearing from you!

Remember… keep believing in the magic of the Wild World!

Everyday our precious Marimba opens her eyes she makes history… 💕 This incredible animal is the oldest living Cape Ground Pangolin living in captivity in Africa. She arrived at the Wild is Life Sanctuary 18 years ago and now as a fully grown adult we still marvel and her mysterious and marvellous ways. No one knows quite how long pangolins in the wild live as they are so illusive and hard to study.Our hope is that through thousands of guests meeting, connecting and learning about her and the plight of her species, that we have been able to educate and inspire others of the need to protect these extraordinary creatures.Happy #WorldPangolinDay Marimba – we love you!Post your favourite pictures or videos of Marimba and make sure to tag us Wild is Life so we can share them and spread the love and awareness all around the globe today. ♥️🌍 #wildislife #CultureOfCare #OnebyOne ...

She is a clever little girl likes to play and copying everything from the mothers. Enjoying her breastfeeding. Sleeping enough time time at night. the moment she wakes up straight on her breast. Very happiness and strong.”Vote to let us know if you’d like us to post more of these updates! ifaw #wildislife_zen #onebyone ... See MoreSee Less
