Stompie and Balu
We have raised $ 36 445 for the Rescued Rhino's and are extremely proud to be able to say thank you to our amazing donors. We also want to especially thank everyone that supported us during this unstable time in the world! Every donation no matter how big or small helps us get closer to our goals!
AN UPDATE ON THE RESCUED RHINOS @ HESC
The six Rescued Rhinos @ HESC are all well and have been fully rehabilitated despite traumatic experiences in poaching incidents or having lost their mothers. We plan to release them all back into the wild, as is our conservation ethos, but at present, we consider them still too young to cope on their own. We are very grateful for the generous support received via GlobalGiving because although it is our privilege and passion to care for these animals, the financial burden is often greater than we can manage.
Here is an update on each of our beautiful rhinos:
Esme is doing really well and loves the company of her friend Dawid, They love playing around running after one another. They also now then try to get a curator involved to play with them. We still see Esmé as our little baby even though she is not at all that little anymore
Khulula is turning into a beautiful lady and will always be seen by Lula’s side. She is also doing very well and with cold weather, she gets really playful.
Lula is also well. She has grown up so fast and we can see that she wants to be the top rhino as she keeps Khulula and Nkhandla in line when it comes to feeding time. She insists on being the first one to eat and only then may Khulula and Nkhandla follow
Nkhandla is an adventure seeker. Often he will wander away from the ladies, just to see what he can find along the way. He really enjoys his mud baths and will most of the time be found lying around in the mud bath.
Stompie is doing well and is mostly seen with Balu – in fact the two are almost inseparable. We are very proud of the bond that Stompie and Balu have made here, knowing that is was of great comfort to them in the rehabilitation process.
Balu is also well and is always first when it is feeding time. He and Stompie love taking mud baths and taking it easy on a warm day.
