Thandi and Themba

Meeting Thandi and Thembi

M Whitehead Kariega 02500My first sight of Thandi and Tembi was a very moving experience, knowing all this brave rhino mom has been through. Mix this in with a huge dollop of joy at seeing her healthy little one suckling greedily while ma grazed away calmly and you find your emotions on a real rollercoaster.

Read this delightful account of their first meeting and other encounters. "It has been an absolute honour and privilege to spend the last three months back at Kariega observing and documenting Thembi’s growth" says Angie.

Inspired by Thandi: Dr Will Fowlds

Will Fowlds RhinoIt is fitting that our last story of how Thandi has inspired positive action is from wildlife vet Dr William Fowlds. Dr Fowlds was called on the morning of 2 March 2012 when our team found that three rhinos had been poached at Kariega. Since then he has shared the story of Thandi, Themba and Bull #84 around the world to generate awareness and raise funds for the protection and conservation of rhino. We are grateful to work with this kind, talented and passionate man.
