Man’s sympathetic approach to colonizing the wilderness has resulted in large numbers of wild birds and animals being injured. Hazards such as hit and run incidents, poisoning, trapping, barbed wire fences and many more contribute to the decline in wildlife populations. And when endangered species are involved, the problems become critical. The Animal Rehabilitation Centre (ARC) east of Pretoria is dedicated solely to handling such cases. This episode of “On Track” takes a look at the valuable contributions they’re making to the conservation effort.
