Rhinos at Inverdoorn

When you first hear the lovingly pathetic, high-pitched trumpeting sound emanating around the enclosure, it is impossible to believe that the noise is being made by such a large, thick-skinned, tough looking mammal. But it is feeding time, and Bundu and Lavinia, the two baby rhinos at Inverdoorn, are letting everyone around know that they are hungry.

Friday the 13th

The Buffalo

Big 5 Focus

The African Buffalo is part of the Big Five, but often overshadowed by the other members. One of the reasons is that, fortunately, the African Buffalo is not faced with severe threats to its survival like the other members are. This magnificent beast is listed on the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List of Threatened Species as "Least Concern". Buffalos are misleading creatures, because although they appear...

Meeting the Interns: Thomas Prevot
