Summary

Meet Thaba, Peter and Bula, three white rhino orphans who lost their mothers in different circumstances. Thaba's mother was killed by poachers, Peter's mother was killed by an elephant, and Bula's mother died of old age. In each case, these three little ones needed to be taken in and given the love and care they so desperately needed. They will be released back into the wild when fully grown and rehabilitated. Thaba is now around 18 months old, Peter around 4 months old and Bula around 8 months.

Challenge

Rhino poaching is an ongoing problem in South Africa. Poachers stop at nothing to get their hands on rhino horns, which fetch exorbitant amounts on the black market. As a result, many baby rhinos are left orphaned and traumatised. In addition, nature too can take its course and leave behind more traumatised baby rhinos who now need to be fed with a milk supplement in the absence of mother's milk. They will need to be rehabilitated, and their health closely monitored.

Solution

By donating towards this project, donors will be playing an active part in taking care of these little rhinos through providing funds towards their feeding, medicine, and veterinary care when needed (which will be at various stages throughout the time they spend at the Centre).

Long-Term Impact

Donors will be contributing towards rhino conservation, because with each rhino that can be saved and eventually released, the fast-declining white rhino population has the potential to grow.
