Thandi, the rhino that was poached at Kariega Game Reserve in March 2012, received a skin graft procedure earlier this week, attended by 12 year old Julia Murray. Julia is a rhino activist who has been raising awareness about rhino poaching in Hong Kong and beyond in the Asian region. She has also raised R90 000 for rhino conservation – a great example of a young person building on the example set by a previous generation of committed eco-warriors. Kudos to Dr Fowlds, Julia, and the other members of the team and here’s hoping that Thandi the rhino can hereafter lead a peaceful and undisturbed life!
