Southern White Rhino

First ever calf of 2 poaching survivors celebrates 1st birthday!

What a difference a year makes!

12 months ago Saving the Survivors celebrated a conservation milestone, little “Daniel” was born! The one-year-old Southern White Rhino was the first ever calf with both parents being survivors of poaching!

His mother “Lucky” escaped a poaching attempt with a bullet wound and we rescued his father “Seha” after he was horrifically butchered and left for dead by poachers, who brutally hacked away his face and stole his horns.

Daniel is the finest example of exactly what we are trying to achieve. It is one thing to save one animal, but if that animal goes on to reproduce, that is real conservation!

Happy birthday Daniel!

We would like to thank Thaba Manzi Auctioneering Services for their support in caring for Seha and Daniel.
