Jurg Olsen is an animal behaviour expert and has been working with wildlife for over 18 years. Having gained vital experience at his former home, Jukani, he has now embarked on a whole new adventure of becoming a sanctuary manager of newly established rescue sanctuary, Ubuntu Wildlife Sanctuary which is 900-hectares in size and situated in the North-West province.
Jurg founded the Ubuntu: Spirit of Africa Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Sanctuary NPC in 2015 with the sole purpose of rescuing captive and free roaming wildlife species from undesirable situations, and incidents of poaching. In 2016 he managed the capture and relocation of 3 pregnant black rhino cows and 4 white rhinos from a reserve in Limpopo. The animals were being slaughtered in a poaching spree and the reserve had lost 3 rhinos to poachers with another 4 wounded in a week long poaching attack.
