FreeMe is a rehabilitation centre for indigenous wildlife based in the north of Johannesburg. It was founded in 1997 by a group of trained rehabilitators who realised that there was not enough organised care for wildlife. FreeMe has filled the gap that traditional vet clinics cannot cater for, and provides specialist treatment, care and rehabilitation for wildlife until they can be released back to the wild. Keith encouraged Rosie to start volunteering at FreeMe many years ago, but it was only in 2010 when Rosie gave in and began her passionate volunteering career with FreeMe. Since then, Rosie has never looked back, and Keith never complained about the strange smells emanating from Rosie's clothes. Keith was also a passionate wildlife enthusiast and ornithologist and was never found too far away from his trusty binoculars. Keith waited in keen anticpation at the end of each day to find out what had been rescued or released, and had hoped to become more involved in the future.
The money raised will be used to fund or contribute towards a specilaised wild animal transport trailer, as well as desperately required telemetry collars for monitoring released raptors and other wildlife such as wild cats and caracals. The donation in Keith's memory will contibute towards continued scientific development and understanding of the behaviour of rehabilitated wildlife released back to the wild.
Any contribution, no matter the size will be gratefully recieved.
