As we welcome 2023, we want to take this opportunity to thank our generous donors for their support of the protection and care of last two northern white rhinos in the world. With your aid, we navigated another challenging year, and stood fast against the threat of poachers, and the worst drought that has gripped Kenya in the last 40 years.
Both northern white rhinos, Najin now aged 33 and Fatu aged 22, are happy and healthy. Towards the latter half of 2022, Ol Pejeta welcomed some rains, which helped mitigate the impact of the prolonged drought, and enabled green shoots to grow. This provided the two girls with some much needed respite for playing in the mud and happy grazing!
In recent weeks, the Conservancy has become to get very hot and dry again, and the team continues to supplementary feed the rhinos with hay, so that they have enough food during the night. We are enormously grateful to the support of donors like yourself, whose support has helped us ensure we can continue providing the resources that are needed to maintain their health and safety.
A warm Asante Sana from us, Njin, Fatu and their primary caregiver Zach, and the Ol Pejeta Team!
