I’m pleased to announce that Thandi, the miraculous poaching survivor, is expecting!
Dr. William Fowlds, who has been part of Thandi’s life since the poaching attempt on her life said,
“I don’t recall such a small value carrying such huge significance for anything in my professional life. Thandi is arguably the single most important rhino alive as I am not aware of any individual animal that has carried the plight of the rhino out to the world to the extent that she has and continues to do. Her story has touched the lives of so many people across the globe and her courage is reflected in our love for her and the species that she represents. The prospects of a successful pregnancy and birth represent the hope of survival. In a crisis which threatens us with despair, that hope, as insignificant as it may seem for some, is what we cling to for dear life.”
If all goes well for this courageous soul, she will have come full circle from birth to almost death, and now delivering a new life into the world to carry on Thandi’s legacy, and hope for all rhino.
