AN UPDATE ON THE RESCUED RHINOS @ HESC

After an eventful 2019 and the release of 7 of the Rescued Rhino’s, we can report that all of them are still safe and happy after their release!

News from the 6 orphans still in our care:

Esme has had a few visits from the Vet recently as she has developed a small hole next to her horn that needed attention. The Vets have not come to a conclusion as to what it is but it does not seem to be causing problems. Our team has just been instructed to drain it and to keep it clean while keeping a watchful eye on her. She still loves her mud baths and her daily visits from David as well as spending time with her pedi-sheep friend, Mielie.

Lula, Nhlanhla and Khulula are peas in a pod. They love taking midday naps next to each other under the same tree even if space gets limited sometimes.

Stompie and Balu stick together like superglue, they have been very fond of each other and best friends since they met. They also love hassling and playing games with the staff, especially when its feeding time. 

 We will send you another update on the rhinos and their progress within the quarter.

FUNDING

Funds raised from the Big Rhino Need Big Hearts Too project allow us to continue to rehabilitate, protect and give sanctuary where needed to this endangered species.

Thank you for your contribution to these beautiful animals. Please continue to support us where you can.
