THE WAILERS CONCERT

Stand Up to Save the Rhino

The Stand Up! concert is the concept of Damien Vergnaud, founder of RhinoProtect and owner of Inverdoorn Game Reserve and Iziba Safari Lodge. RhinoProtect was established in response to the unabated and indiscriminate slaughter of rhinos in South Africa. Following the cruel dehorning of a neighbouring game reserve's rhino, Damien and his team, which included concerned rangers and veterinary specialists, decided to administer the horn...

THE LEGALISATION DEBATE CONTINUED

The previous post (What if We Legalized The Trade in Rhino Horn?) merely skimmed the surface of the argument in favour of legalising the rhino horn. If we are to have something to debate well then we need to see the problem from all sides and the legalisation argument certainly needs further investigation. The most comprehensive argument in favour of legalisation I found is one offered by Michael 't Sas-Rolfes, Environmental...

JOTI'S MOVING OUT

Becoming a BIG Boy

Joti is soon three years old – in cheetah years it means he is now an adult. So Damian and the WCCC team had a special surprise for him! For Christmas 2011 Joti got his own new house and a new camp.

Now they can see and sniff each other, but don´t get in...

I remember the moment when Lisa first gave me Velvet's leash and said: "It's your turn!". A...

STARTING A NEW LIFE

The Future of Joti

Joti has now been moved to the wild cheetah reserve, where he stays in an enclosed camp. It is a nice medium-sized camp with a house where he can sleep at night and a female on the other side of the fence. Hopefully we will be able to put them together for breeding if all goes well, and they like each other. He can start his new and wild life!The other wild cheetahs in the reserve can visit him, but only through the fence so they...
