Thandi the rhino gives birth

Thandi-calf-Jan2015-GaryVanWyk1The resilience of life never ceases to amaze me! I have been following the story of Thandi, a rhino who survived the harrowing experience of having her horn chopped off and being left for dead. Well, now there is a wonderful new twist to Thandi’s story as on 13 January she gave birth to a calf. Last year more than 1200 rhinos were poached in South Africa – this is beyond criminal and is in fact a terrible indictment on the human race. I hope that Thandi’s story inspires people around the world to fight for rhino conservation because we cannot stand by and let this magnificent species dwindle into extinction to satisfy humankind’s greed!!
