Report ● Respond ● Remove
Snare Free is a collaborative network of conservation, animal welfare and volunteer organisations providing a coordinated response to snared wildlife incidents in the Western Cape, South Africa, as well as improving training, data collection, and awareness to combat the prevalence of snaring in the Western Cape.
It is essential that response time and stress for animals caught in snares are kept to a minimum, so an organised response by skilled professionals is required to assist injured animals efficiently and in a manner that is safe for both the animal and humans involved.
A Western Cape
Snare Response Plan
has been compiled with input from various public and private stakeholders across the Western Cape, with the aim of achieving streamlined reporting, emergency response and follow-up for animals caught in snares.
