Nikela welcomes volunteers, supports wildlife documentary, discussions with Ecko and Raytones, protects rhino and endangered species.
What an amazing week!
Being involved with Nikela is a roller coaster of emotions… from hearing “How can I help?” to “China is farming rhino” and “Here’s what happened filming today” to “There’s a rhino in the kitchen!”
Here are a few of the highlights:

Inside the Makings of a Wildlife Documentary
I’m just dying to spill the beans! Out there in the bush of Africa a wildlife documentary is being filmed. Every few days I get photos and notes from the field… but I can’t share details with you yet. However, very soon you’ll be taken inside the makings of a wildlife documentary. Here is the film maker at work…
Collaboratives Could Really Help the Rhino
The trendy clothier Ecko invited us to discuss a collaborative effort for 2012. The rhino is their icon so thinking “Tom shoes” makes a lot of business sense and could really be big for Nikela Rhino Rescue. Just this week I was introduce to Alex from Raytones, a cool band specializing in kids music who has Ray the Rhino as their mascot. Again, a collaboration here could go far to assist Nikela in helping the real life rhinos of Africa.
Bits and Pieces
You’ll notice some changes on the website and the social networks over the next weeks. Mike who came on board in late March has now brought on the whole Maven team to give Nikela a super charged boost as we go into our second year. Thank you Mike.
I could end with the horrible news about China farming rhino or the horrors of canned lion hunting… but instead I hope you’ll enjoy, “There’s a Rhino in the House”. The story of this young rhino is both heart warming and sad, and full of chuckles as you can imagine a rhino in your house.
