Your help is needed for A GIRLFRIEND FOR THABO...Thabo our rescued orphan rhino is turning 11 years this year. Since he is in his breeding prime we need to find him a girlfriend. Thabo is just not mating with Ntombi our female rhino as they were brought up together, and since 2009 are enjoying a "brother-sister-relationship".
Help our Rhino for future generations! We need your financial help and support to purchase two female rhinos.
Thula Thula has all essential and professional anti-poaching and security in place to ensure that these rhinos and their offspring's are being well protected.In March 2019 it was the first anniversary of the death of the last male Northern Rhino; one species that is now extinct. With nearly 10.000 rhino poached in the last decade, we need to do everything to ensure the survival of the rhino.
We have observed Thabo’s intricate scent-marking ceremony showing that he is ready to find a mate. Females are sexually mature at around 5 years old and will breed at six or seven years of age. Therefore the time is right!
Our team has sourced two female rhinos that could be joining the Thula Thula family right away.
As South African musician Vusi Mahlasela rightfully says: "Countless families in South Africa's rural communities rely on wildlife tourism for their livelihoods. If we have a voice, we should use it for those who do not."
Help us to ensure that Thula Thula can play an important part ascertain the survival of the rhino by supporting this fundraiser!
