On Tuesday morning, 19th of July 2016, we received a phone call from SANParks officials informing us of another orphaned baby rhino that was found beside his recently poached mother in the southern region of the Kruger National Park.
The baby rhino, now named Zac, was transported to the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary at approximately 3pm that afternoon in his private helicopter and alongside his private veterinarian Louis van Wyk.
While his experience was deeply traumatic, we are very happy to report that due to the rescue intervention, Zac is now doing remarkably well! Overall, he is in good health and has no visible wounds.
During the month of November 2016, Zac received three new friends (Jemu, Grey and Spirit) with whom he bonded instantly.
On the 24th of November 2016, we moved the four baby orphans down to the big holding facility. They are being monitored constantly and we are happy to report that all four orphans are doing very well; drinking all their milk and eating the dry feeds that we also provide.
