Book Review by Jan Cox MBAPosted: April 22, 2011
What a pleasure to read a story about wildlife rehabilitation written by authors who really know what they are talking about. I have worked in animal welfare for over 20 years, including at Director level for the World Society for the Protection of Animals and as co-founder of World Animal Net, and I can thoroughly recommend this book to anybody else who – like me – loves Africa and its wildlife. The trials and tribulations of running a wildlife sanctuary are honestly and successfuly presented within an interesting and enlightening historical case study – which is as gripping as any novel. The authors established their own successful rehabilitation centre in the Kalahari, which I had the pleasure to visit. They know and understand their subject, and are totally dedicated to the wlldlife cause … so much so that the proceeds for selling this book are being put towards the Campaign Against Canned Hunting, which they now run. So: You buy and enjoy a book; The money goes to help ban canned hunting. How ‘win-win’ is that?!
