A Rhino Tale

A RHINO'S TALE. ©A poem by Caroline Street. I was born at midday,Under the shady Umbrella Tree.Filtered sunlight, like warm hayBrought life to a newly born me.The soft green grass,Was my cushion of welcome. That first sweet tasteOf mother's milk,Brought strength to a frail young me.A soft nudge from Mom,Was all the encouragement needed,To raise me to my feet.I was born into freedomIn the animal kingdom. For the next few days,Life...

“COMING TOGETHER IS A BEGINNING; KEEPING TOGETHER IS PROGRESS; WORKING TOGETHER IS SUCCESS.” – HENRY FORD

Indaba 2013

Arriving at King Shaka International Airport in Durban for the 2013 Indaba we were greeted with a wet welcome. Rain, accompanied by a biting chill, contradicted the legend of Durban's warm weather. This meant that the first day of Indaba on 11 May was a busy one, as the prospect of being indoors was a good one.

Trevor Noah recently commented on Twitter that "Those red Rhino horns on cars are so cute. Remember when we used to do that for human beings?" I could go on an animal-loving rant about the sad state of...

The Rhino Horn Mystery

Many of you may have seen me when you visited Inverdoorn and went on a safari. For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting me, my name is Balekha and I came to the game reserve with my mother. I am a white rhino, but it's a very silly name because I'm actually grey and so is the black rhino. Both of us are African rhinos and there are also three other types of rhinos. The other three are Asian and they are: the Indian...

Where We Stand So Far

Where We Stand So Far

The year has barely started and already almost 100 rhinos have been killed by poachers. As before, most of the slaughter has occurred in the Kruger National Park. In March the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) will take place in Bangkok, Thailand. South African Water and Environmental Affairs' Minister Edna Molewa will most certainly bring the matter of rhino poaching to the fore....
