It's not just the baby mammals that need looking after at Khulula Wild Care
When the female is ready to give birth, she goes into hiding so that the male will not kill the young. For 3 days she remains hidden, suckling & protecting her tiny offspring. The youngsters are weaned after 6 weeks & can feed themselves by 8 weeks. At 4 months they are fully grown. In captivity, when they are fed regularly all year round, bush babies breed constantly throughout the year.
Riley is a bush baby at Khulula Wild Care. The volunteers are responsible for hand rearing many animals at the centre.
Making friends with the rhinos
Duke was bought into Khulula Wild Care just a few hours old. It was thought that he had been abandoned by his mum. The volunteers lovingly cared for him until the centre sadly lost him to tick bite fever. While his time on Earth was cut short, the volunteers had given him all their love and care knowing that for his last few weeks he was extremely happy. R.I.P Duke.
