I Gasped When I Saw A Rhino So Near A Child, But His History Is WAY More Shocking

The poaching of rhinoceroses for their horns has been running rampant for decades. These people do it for money, as the ivory trade is extremely profitable, while others have used the rhino’s horn for medicinal properties.

These claims have proven to be false, but that hasn’t stopped the local population from continuing these practices.

However, their actions have decimated the populations of these creatures and have put them on the edge of extinction.

Actions are being taken to curtail these activities, but it can be difficult to regulate when their habitats are so vast.

Many of the rhinos who are killed are often mothers, and that leaves the babies with no one to take care of them.

In the end, the actions of the poachers end up taking two lives instead of just one. However, when this lone baby rhino was found after its mother had been murdered, someone had to step in to provide the care that he needs.

The majority of these babies end up in The Rhino Orphanage, where they learn to take care of each other during their troubling times.

They range from babies to those orphans who have already grown up.

One such rhino named Thandi was actually the victim of a vicious poaching attempt that resulted in the loss of her horn, but she still managed to survive.

In time, some of these rhinos will have to live with the traumatic scars, both physical and emotional, that they’ve had to endure from these horrible activities.

But thankfully, with the helping hands of wildlife orphanages and reserves, they have the chance to start again and build new lives with each other for support.
