Themba’s Legacy Lives On

In early March of 2012 three rhinos were found poached in the Kariega Game Reserve. One immediately died. The remaining two made it through the night. The survivors-Thandi (meaning love) and Themba
(meaning hope) were tended to with intense veterinary care.

Thandi, after a long recovery, survived. Unfortunately after 24 days, Themba died. (See earlier post: Thandi’s Story)
The story, however, doesn’t end there.miracle baby

Almost exactly a year after the poaching of Themba, his daughter was born. She is yet unnamed, but is doing well. Ironically,  her mother one of Thandi’s closest friends on the reserve.
