Unique personalities, the need to be loved and cuddled and a goofy sense of humor – up until today I didnt realise these descriptions could be used to describe baby rhinos. ???? Heartbreakingly, these babies come into the care of @therhinoorphanage because their mothers are killed in unethical poaching, still practiced widely today. As a consequence they come to this facility incredibly distressed, traumatized calling out for their mothers and sometimes eating sand out of stress. The passionate volunteers of the @therhinoorphanage go above and beyond to care for these little giants, spending sometimes 24hours a day with them, feeding them, caring for them, rehabilitating them and preparing them to one day be realised back into freedom. I never realised how baby rhinos feel “human emotions” – they need love and companionship. If you’d like to join me in supporting the efforts of the @therhinoorphanage you can donate through their website at www.therhinoorphanage.co.za ???? Thank you for reading ????
