Rhino Thandi's Story Inspires Saudi School

South African teacher Florina Froneman-Gerber started a class discussion about conservation at the Dhahran Tower Nursery & Preschool in Saudi Arabia. The conversation moved on to include talking about the many threats to black and white rhino. Florina shared the story of how Thandi was poached for her horns and how she miraculously survived. Thandi's story inspired the children to want to help conserve and protect rhino.

Saudi School Raises Funds for Rhinos

With great minds and humble hearts, the children launched a fund raiser at their school. Handmade bracelets, pre-loved toys and books were sold at a market day on 29 May 2018. The amazing amount of R6,000 was raised during the market day and has been donated to our Kariega Foundation Save the Rhino fund. This money will be used to help protect Thandi, her rhino family and all of the rhinos living at Kariega Game Reserve in South Africa.
