Welcome to this very special page on our website, not that the others aren’t special too! – However, having been out to South Africa many times and particularly to the KwaZulu-Natal region (Tom’s sister lives there!), we have seen first hand the effect of poaching on the African Wildlife, particularly the Rhino.
This touched our hearts and therefore it gives us overwhelming joy to be able to donate a percentage of every sale of Protea Wellness products to African Wildlife Vets.
Being a charity in South Africa this does not provide us with tax breaks for doing this, it is purely from the burning desire to give back to this beautiful country that has given us so much.
So, thank you for purchasing our products, you have donated to this amazing group of individuals!

African Wildlife Vets is a conservation based non-profit (NPO) and public benefit organisation (PBO). They provide veterinary support to state and communal protected areas through the provision of pharmaceuticals, veterinary equipment and veterinarians.
As the human population has grown in the Zululand and Maputaland regions of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, wildlife has become increasingly under pressure from land transformation, snaring, poaching and disease transmitted by domestic livestock and pets, placing veterinary services under strain.
In addition to this the operational budget for state managed protected areas has been drastically reduced over the past few years. These cuts have had a huge effect on veterinary operations that are essential for the conservation and protection of wildlife species.
All threatened species in the Zululand region of South Africa will receive adequate, appropriate and high quality veterinary attention and care.
Their mission is to assist wildlife organisations with the conservation of threatened species by providing enhanced veterinary support.
