Funding African Wildlife Survival (F.A.W.S) – Benue Zoo –
BENUE ZOO – THE FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL IS NOW RACING WE NEED URGENT MEDICAL ASSISTANCE
Dear supporters and viewers – Please read – Benue Zoo a catalogue of abuse
International Animal Rescue Foundation © has now initiated its first fundraiser in regards to the catastrophic abuse that has been dealt to the animals at Benue Zoo in Nigeria. The fundraiser is for the soul purpose of the (FAWS) mission (Funding African Wildlife Survival). On the 21st October 2012 we was handed a video depicting the most appalling captive wild animal abuse seen in ten years by most of our conservations and ecologists that all described the abuse as heart breaking and nauseating. 1991 saw the Nigerian government withdraw all funding from the Benue Zoo leaving it to fall to its knees.
The animals and staff then had to fend for themselves. Taken over by a United Kingdom and African privatisation company named Africa Consultants “that was unavailable for comment” the zoo has fallen in to a copious state of disrepair, and neglect that one can describe from the pictures sent to us by the zoo visitor as a “concentration camp for animals fighting for survival”.
Eighty per cent of the animals have sadly perished from starvation, infection, dehydration, environmental exposure, and inner species predatory hunting/fighting for survival as the zoos security to contain these animals has literally fallen to pieces with no zoo husbandry present neither.
Benue state zoo’s inhabitants that were abducted from the wild “ranged” from Lions, Cheetahs, Leopards, Pangolins, Snakes, Reptilians, aquatics to primates and tropical spiders. There are now only eighteen animals left in the zoo, of which are now fighting for their life. Please view the video here – http://youtu.be/A_8PHwWObns we was dropped this urgent case within our laps which fortunately comes under our (F.A.W.S) mission Funding African Wildlife Survival.
Regrettably though we have no more veterinary staff to send out to Nigeria so we are pleading for help from members of the public to please place a small donation to the funding mission of which all funds shall go on the following
- Species survival
- Veterinary aid and medication plus equipment
- Rehoming of the Lioness that is now stable although still very ill as of starvation and pressure sores that have caused intense infection
- Veterinary transport
- Food, and water
- Temporary security to keep all species secure to halt predatory attack brought on hunger
We have no wish to just neither ignore nor fail these animals even if it’s eighteen. Ostrich’s, Deer, Baboons, Dwarf Crocodiles, one Lioness, Cranes, Endangered Turtles plus other species need immediate critical help.
All funds “can” be refundable at the click of a button, once all funds are gathered though refunds will not be given please refer to the “finish November date” should you wish to be refunded the donation within the set time you can. We may if the Chip In has not gathered the required amount then set the dead line for the Chip In further on maybe into next year “at the very earliest”. These animals need immediate medical and nutritional aid immediately without delay or we will lose all of them hence the strictness of this mission.
All receipts and statements, plus other details along with the names of veterinary staff, medicines, address of companies involved, rank name and number shall be placed at this address in the “photo album” https://www.facebook.com/pages/International-Animal-Rescue-Foundation-World-Action-South-Africa/199685603444685#!/pages/International-Animal-Rescue-Foundation-World-Action-South-Africa/199685603444685 The location of Benue Zoo is at this exact (GPS) location http://goo.gl/maps/mA1gDhttp://goo.gl/maps/qVJpa http://goo.gl/maps/mA1gDhttp://goo.gl/maps/mA1gD and the actual physical address is located within the grounds of this university that are refusing to feed the animals as “it’s property of the government” Along Gboko Rd, P M B 102119 Makurdi 970001, Nigeria.

We welcome any donation small or large all we want now is for these animals to be cared for, given the medications they desperately need, along with hydration and zoo husbandry ascertained. Please help us to help them. For more information you can contact us as firstname.lastname@example.org
Our aim is to eventually close this zoo down and move all animals to sanctuaries from which they will be given the love they so deserve. We do not wish to fund this zoo to aid “captivity” as that is what we are 100% against. Benue zoos animals CAN NOT under no circumstances be released back in to the wild as of their imprisonment within captivity that has gone on for years. These animals have seen and had enough now of the torture please let’s give them the life they deserve back until they die naturally.
Thank you for your donation and support. Should you wish for a progress report after we have sustained life then please email us.
