Remembering Bev Pervan

Remembering Bev Pervan | Wildlife Conservation: People and Stories | Scoop.it
Bev died from cancer on 30th April last year (2016). We remember her today because of the impact she made on animal welfare in South Africa. Most people go through life making acquaintances. Bev went through life making friends who would die for her. This was because she cared so much for her friends, both human and animal. Watching Bev work with wild animals and birds was a privilege. There is nothing glamorous about wildlife rehab work. It is all about getting bitten, kicked and scratched on a daily basis. Love of animals by itself is not enough. The rehabber needs toughness. And Bev had toughness in spades.
