Commemoration of rhinos poached at Kariega Game Reserve: 2 March 2012

Today our thoughts go back to that dreadful day two years ago when we found our three rhinos after poachers had attacked them. We think about our unnamed bull that died during the night, the fight for survival and tragic death of Themba and the amazing recovery of Thandi.

Since the beginning of 2012 poachers have killed over 1,800 rhinos in South Africa. We are currently losing three rhinos every day. We pay tribute to our brave rhinos and all those that have lost their lives due to human greed, a lack of understanding and care for our environment.

We share this video of Thandi and the thought provoking words of Dr William Fowlds, the wildlife vet who has treated her and helped take this story across the world to fuel public passion for rhino conservation. We encourage you to share it, and get involved in whatever way you can to help in the fight for the survival of rhino. Show less
