research on endangered species

Basic research on endangered species can be crucial

At Saving The Survivors it is very important to also do basic research on endangered species like Rhino.  Recently we did a CT scan on a newborn calf whose mother got poached and fractured her leg really badly. On post-mortem examination of the cow we found the almost full – term calf.  That in itself beg another question: did we lose one or two animals?  Statistically only one animal is counted, but in reality we have lost two animals.

The CT scan of the calf as well as the heads and legs we are doing will help us understand better the anatomy of these iconic animals. That in turn will assist and help veterinarians and wildlife managers all over the world to treat injured rhino with either snare, gunshot or poaching injuries more successful.
