Pitt-Jolie Foundation Link to the Wildlife Sanctuary
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have contributed hugely to the Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary.
Shiloh their daughter was actually born in Namibia, and Angelina met the owners while filming in the country, and they became friends. Since then Angelina and Brad set up a foundation to contribute to the Sanctuary - specifically to build the cheetah reserve. And ok - we're all sad they have split but they are still Shiloh's parents - and always will be.
American celebrities Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have supported a Namibian private wildlife sanctuary with a new enclosure for endangered cheetah.
"Five of your seven magnificent cheetahs are strolling into their new seven-hectare enclosure, purring their appreciation for the Jolie-Pitts," the Wildlife Sanctuary Foundation said.
"We hope one day to be able to show Shiloh [Jolie-Pitt] the piece of paradise she created".
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is the firstborn of actors' three biological children , with the pair also having three adopted children.
Shiloh, eight-years old, was born in Namibia in May 2006, to where the couple retreated for several weeks to prepare for the baby's birth away from international media hype.
Jolie and Pitt established the Jolie-Pitt Foundation in Namibia in 2006 to mark the birth of daughter Shiloh in that country.
"The foundation continues to bless our many projects," the wildlife sanctuary stated.
The recent completion of a five-hectare enclosure for baboons -- either orphaned or brought injured to the Sanctuary and nursed back to health but cannot be released into the wild -- was entirely funded by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
Jolie first became involved with the Sanctuary after working with local conservationist Marlice on a film shoot -"Beyond Borders" --in 2003 in Namibia.
Marlice and her husband Rudi are co-founders of the Wildlife Sanctuary in Namibia.
Angelina Jolie has since visited several times, together with Brad Pitt and their six children.
They take an active interest and involvement in our projects, feeding the animals in our sanctuary and meeting the San Bushman community here.
The Jolie-Pitt Foundation helps the Sanctuary's long-term projects, like conservation for carnivores and wild dogs, and supporting vulnerable people in Namibia like the San.
Our vision for the new projects is to grow them into something that Shiloh can be part of, an internationally recognisable foundation that is sustainable in the long term and stays true to its mission of doing good, regardless
