'DISUNITY' UPDATE:

We left Europe and have finally arrived in NYC to attend a fundraiser for the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary. Unfortunately, both Garth and I have picked up a horrible flu during our travels and have been pretty much unable to leave our beds. To perk up our spirits we were very happy to hear of some fantastic arrests lately of poachers in South Africa but unfortunately, the slaughter of rhinos still goes on. Just this morning, Madikwe Game Reserve found the 4 day old carcass of a adult bull rhino.

CARE FOR WILD UPDATE:

Leo and Faye, who were rescued within a few days of each other in late December, have settled in and most importantly bonded with each other. Petronel said 'they are both drinking well and are on their way to recovery." We can't wait to meet these two when we get back to South Africa!

Little Sibevu is also doing incredibly well after her miraculous survival from a gun shot wound. As you can see in the video below, her injury has almost completely healed.
