If an injured animal or a missing cub is reported, the KILI C.R.E.W. staff set off to locate the animal in order to rescue it.These are often the results of poaching (a baby elephant found next to its mother who was killed for her ivory tusks) or animals injured in wildlife traps or road accidents.
Animal rescue and transfer to the centre are very delicate actions: the animals are not accustomed to humans and need time to trust them slowly slowly in order to accept milk or veterinary treatment.
Makoa Farm is also a centre for educating children and young people from neighbouring villages. They are taught basic school subjects (reading, writing, mathematics and English) as well as the importance of wildlife conservation.
