In memory of Olive (and all others), one of the many victims of South Africa’s disrespect to wildlife: poached and stripped. Olive Foundation, by Wild Cats World, raises funds for all activities fighting against poaching, stripping, trading, hunting…..snares. As well as to rescue her three friends out of the same “hell hole” and construct a nice and safe home for them.
Please do support Olive Foundation with this essential work. Her death being not in vain, we hope she will be the symbol of the rescue of many big cats and other wildlife awaiting the same ill fate.Thanks.
