Rhinos

Every year since 2008 the number of rhinos being poached for their horns has increased. In 2013 over 1 000 rhinos were poached. This year the number of rhinos already killed is on track to beat the previous year. Both the Black and White rhino have a long history of being overhunted.

An American in South Africa

My name is John McIlvaine and I am from Seattle, Washington, USA. This is my second trip to South Africa to do volunteer cheetah conservation work, but this is my first time at Inverdoorn.

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.
