The N/a’an ku sê Foundation is proud to announce its newest project, the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary. The main aim of the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary is to assist and care for any rhinos or elephants that have been injured or orphaned in a poaching incident.

The facility is equipped with holdings pens, trucks, crates and veterinary equipment, and has a full-time veterinarian available. Animals that come to the facility will be cared for until they are fit and ready to be returned. Angelina Jolie has been friends with Marlice and Rudie Van Vuuren for over 16 years. The Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary was opened by Angelina and the children during their recent visit to Namibia. Shiloh who was born in Namibia was delighted to see how the sanctuary will assist and care for injured rhinos and elephants. The Sanctuary is one of many projects at N/a’an ku sê funded by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation over the years, and is a collaboration between N/a’an ku sê, JPF and the Ministry of Environment and Tourism.

During the visit Angelina also had a meeting with His Excellency Dr. Hage Geingob, Madame Monica Geingos and Dr. Rudie van Vuuren of N/a’an ku sê, to discuss the Sanctuary and other projects of national conservation interest.
