Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW)

What is CROW?

CROW is Durban’s only registered wildlife rehabilitation centre dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of all indigenous wildlife found in KwaZulu-Natal. They assist over 3000 orphaned, injured and displaced animals every year. From mongoose, genets and monkeys to birds, reptiles and antelope, CROW represents a second chance at a free, safe and sustainable life for all wild animals in distress.

Visiting CROW

On the last Sunday of every month, they are open to the public from 11:00am to 13:00pm which starts with a presentation in the Educentre about the work they do, environmental conservation and how we can help. Thereafter you are taken on a guided tour of the  facility. It’s a nonprofit organisation so the place isn’t fancy but I think it’s a great place to visit if your child is an animal lover. The gates open at 10:45am.

  1. Good day,
    I live in JHB side, and love the turtle very much,
    but I also understand it is illgal if I took the wild turtle home and raise it.
    I researched the internet and found perhaps I can adopt a leopard turtle from C.R.O.W.,
    so I am not sure you can help me or not?
    thanks in advance!

  2. We have a tortoise who somehow ended up in our yard. I first saw the tortoise when our dog had the animal in cluthed un his mouth and dropped it at my feet. Please can you arrange to fetch it asap. Thank you.
