When Thandi the rhino was found, along with two other rhinos, on death’s door, she needed a miracle to pull through. But it turned out that Thandi would become the miracle the world needed.
The illegal ivory trade is a devastating affair and innocent rhinos and elephants suffer at the hands of poachers every day. The trade has resulted in the near extinction of these species but people still continue to hunt and kill them for their horns.
Veterinarians and rescuers found three rhinos at the Kariega Game Reserve in South Africa, all with their horns already removed by poachers. One rhino was already dead at the scene but the other two, Thandi and Themba, were fighting for life.
Doctor William Fowlds did his best to provide the two surviving rhinos with the medical attention they required.
