Zululand Rhino Orphanage
In February 2016, the Zululand Conservation Trust saw the need to start the Zululand Rhino Orphanage when another rhino orphanage in South Africa was brutally attacked by poachers. Heartbreakingly, two orphans, just weeks away from being released back into the wild, were killed for their horn. It was a horrific, criminal attack in which staff were also injured.
The Zululand Conservation Trust committed to build a new home for the five rhino orphans that survived the attack and set up a new facility in a secret location – the Zululand Rhino Orphanage.
In just three months the new facility was open, the surviving orphans were relocated and are now thriving in their new home.
