IN celebration of World Clean Up Day, the Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife (Crow), will team up with the Wilderness Leadership School to clean the Umhlatuzana River that runs through Kenneth Stainbank, a 253-hectare reserve established in 1963.

As Durban is known as “Dirtbin”, litter is one of the biggest challenges that our wildlife face. Crow has seen many cases of innocent wildlife that succumb to their injuries caused by litter.

A Swift Tern was admitted to Crow with a fishing hook caught in his mouth. When the tern arrived at the centre it was very dehydrated and undernourished.
The Crow team managed to surgically remove the hook, but the tern was unfortunately, too weak to survive the procedure. 

If you would like to help Crow protect the environment and wildlife, join us at Kenneth Stainbank on September 8. The clean-up will start at 9am where we will meet at the gate and make our way down to the river.

Along with your big smiles and big hearts, please bring a black bag, gloves and lots of water.
