Thabo and Ntombi are both orphans who were relocated at Thula Thula from Moholoholo Rehab Centre when they were 4 and 8 months old. They have now been released into the game reserve under high surveillance.Armed guards accompany Thabo and Ntombi 24/7 to protect them against poachers. With a gunfight having taken place a few months ago – as Thabo got shot in the front leg – as well as the loss of Heidi, a female white rhino who was killed by poachers in 2009, the need for increasing protective measures is a harsh reality. In memory of Lawrence Anthony ("The Elephant Whisperer") the THULA THULA RHINO FUND was established (as a chapter of Earth Org) in order to raise funds for guards, anti poaching training and much-needed specialized equipment, to ensure the on-going survival of our rhinos, as well as to acquire more orphans in the future.
