Our friends at SANCCOB are currently caring for 560 lesser flamingo chicks, part of the nearly 2000 chicks that were rescued at Kamfers Dam in Kimberley last month - and we'd really appreciate it if anyone who is able to assist please do so.

SANCCOB have a wishlist of items that are needed (listed below), but what they really need are cash donations to purchase the specialist medications that these birds desperately need.
