N/a’an ku sê Foundation
The N/a’an ku sê Foundation is proud to announce its newest project, the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary. The main aim of the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary is to assist and care for any rhinos or elephants that have been injured or orphaned in a poaching incident.
The facility is equipped with holdings pens, trucks, crates and veterinary equipment, and has a full-time veterinarian available. Animals that come to the facility will be cared for until they are fit and ready to be returned. Angelina Jolie has been friends with Marlice and Rudie Van Vuuren for over 16 years. The Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary was opened by Angelina and the children during their recent visit to Namibia. Shiloh who was born in Namibia was delighted to see how the sanctuary will assist and care for injured rhinos and elephants. The Sanctuary is one of many projects at N/a’an ku sê funded by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation over the years, and is a collaboration between N/a’an ku sê, JPF and the Ministry of Environment and Tourism.
During the visit Angelina also had a meeting with His Excellency Dr. Hage Geingob, Madame Monica Geingos and Dr. Rudie van Vuuren of N/a’an ku sê, to discuss the Sanctuary and other projects of national conservation interest.

WE PROUDLY ANNOUNCE A HAVEN OF HOPE
The Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary – a sanctuary established through the collaboration of the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, the N/a’an ku sê Foundation and Namibia's Ministry of Environment and Tourism – born of the need to rehabilitate rhinos and elephants, those animals floundering in the vice-like grip of poaching, an act seemingly rampant in today’s southern Africa.
The sanctuary forms the crucial heartbeat in caring for any rhinos and elephants having been injured or orphaned in incidents of poaching. Ultimately, the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary is a place of hope and a second chance for Africa’s gentle giants and horned behemoths, animals given a future where previous circumstance would otherwise have denied them the right to life. The facility is equipped with holding pens, trucks, crates and veterinary equipment, and the expertise of a full-time veterinarian fully enhance the dedicated and professional level of care. Animals that come to the facility will be cared for until they are ready to be returned to their places of origin.
The Sanctuary is funded by Angelina Jolie and the Jolie-Pitt Foundation in the name of her Namibian born daughter, Shiloh, and on her recent visit to Namibia, Angelina Jolie, together with her two daughters, Shiloh and Zahara, as well as Dr. Rudie van Vuuren of the N/a'an ku sê Foundation, met with His Excellency Dr. Hage Geingob, President of the Republic of Namibia and Madame Monica Geingos, First Lady of the Republic of Namibia to discuss the Sanctuary and other projects of national conservation interest.
