Young rhino orphans hold the destiny of their species within their DNA, and it is up to the people of South Africa to make sure that they are rescued, cared for and raised into reproductive adulthood.
The Rhino Protection Programme (RPP) - a collaboration between Peace Parks Foundation, the Department of Environmental Affairs, South African National Parks, and Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife - is committed to supporting the efforts of Ezemvelo and Kruger National Park to care for and rehabilitate the numerous rhino orphans recovered from gruesome poaching scenes each year.
When it comes to rhino orphans, the nurturing cycle is broken and human
intervention is essential to support rehabilitation. These young charges
need constant medical attention, feeding, exercise, physical comfort
and company - requiring staff to be on hand to provide around the clock
care. The rehabilitation process can take up to as long as two years,
but once the young rhino are able to fend for themselves, they are moved
away from the bomas to secured rhino strongholds where their progress
and integration into the wild is closely monitored and protected
