The Trust is very grateful to members of Virtuoso African Destinations who generously donated R10 000 for dedicated use in whale disentanglements. Wilfred Chivell has been involved in numerous whale disentanglements and officially belongs to the South African Whale Disentanglement Network (SAWDN)apartnership withMarine & Coastal Management. Using specifically designed tools and following safety protocols, we are able to cut away ropes and gear from the animal. Since its inception SAWDN has disentangled more than a dozen whales off the coast of South Africa.

We thank Andr Botha, Marketing & Sales Director fromTrans Africa Safaris, for arranging this much needed donation.
