PANGOLINS  ....  the world's most wanted animal...

Rare and Endangered Species Trust (REST) was able to finance all of its work through donations – large and small since its existence in 2000.  We have always been able to keep our maintenance costs low by using recycled items and by practicing high levels of conservation for electricity, water, and waste.  


Most importantly, there are so many people out there who give their time and Love to REST.  I wanted to start listing them, but realize that it would take pages.  They perform functions as diverse as taking blood & data captures to introducing us to other institutions that we can partner with.  Without these people, REST would not be where it is today.

This has allowed funds to be used for the direct care of animals and our work in research, conservation, and education.  Due to the need to relocated our center and build from scratch, funds are very low at the moment and no donation is too small. 


Please consider a donation to our tree of life painted by volunteer Christina.

Consider how you would like to keep our tree alive by sponsoring the gift of life. To our many friends over the years who we may have lost contact with, please reach out to us again so that we can stay in touch.

REST’s number one aim in being a good wildlife center is to practice good conservation first. Founder, Maria Diekmann feels strongly that although research and education are key, conservation of a species must take priority. Extinction makes all other aspects irrelevant to survival. Of course, research and education benefit from such efforts.
