Helping Rhinos is celebrating ten years of protecting rhinos in their natural habitat.  Its start began in March of 2012, when Simon learned of the shocking poaching of three rhinos at the Kariega Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

 

 

It had been just two years prior that Simon had spent six weeks on a conservation project at the Kariega Game Reserve and became acquainted with a rhino named Thandi.  Thandi was one of those three rhinos who fortunately survived the poaching incident.  After enduring many operations, she has given birth to four calves in the past ten years.  A remarkable story that speaks volumes of Helping Rhinos’ dedication to ensure the future of the magnificent rhino.
