Anna LOVES baby rhinos
Sadly… many baby rhinos are in trouble!
You’re probably familiar with the horrible rhino poaching problem in Africa. Rhinos are ruthlessly killed for their horns. The horns are smuggled to Asia. There they are sold for thousands of dollars.
When adult female rhinos with a calf fall prey to poachers these baby rhinos are left to die. Fortunately there are people like Anna with Rhino Revolution who care for rescued orphaned baby rhinos.
Anna raises these baby rhinos at a secure rescue rehabilitation center. This center is well equipped to meet the needs of the orphaned baby rhinos. It is a quiet place for them to grow up and prepare for release back into the wild.
Five young rhinos nurtured at this center are now living in the wilds. Don’t they look awesome?
As you can imagine getting them to this point takes a lot of nurturing, time, skill and of course money.
But let’s start at the beginning…
Anna recently joined the team at the Rhino Revolution orphanage and is presently nurturing several orphaned baby rhinos.
(The exact number withheld for security reasons. Unfortunately, security is a big issue, especially as their little horns grow.)
Similar to humans, baby rhinos are traumatized by witnessing the brutal death of their mothers. They cry, walk in circles, some even run into the walls. Keeping them safe, calming them down and getting them to eat during those initial days at their new home is crucial to their survival.
Besides the emotional trauma, which is huge, some are injured during the poacher attack. These little ones require special medical attention sometimes for extended periods of time.
Like human babies, little rhino need physical closeness. A human caretaker is with them constantly until the young one is fit enough to bond with other orphans.
(Unlike other orphanages no volunteers or public are allowed.)
Tons and Gallons
As you can imagine a growing young rhino needs tons of food and gallons of special formula. In the wild a baby rhino suckles from it’s mother for about 18 months! That equates to an awful lot of milk formula!
Raising baby rhinos requires a lot of time and money.
