Rhino Thandi and Family
Rhino warrior Angie Goody reminisces about her excitement when Thandi's rhino calf Thembi was born and at their first meeting. We celebrate this miracle calf turning six months old today.
Kariega Game Reserve was filled with the excited chatter of 26 youth from the outskirts of the Joe Slovo informal settlement in Cape Town over the weekend. The group visited with USA actor and film star Texas Battle and was fully sponsored by Kariega.
My first sight of Thandi and Tembi was a very moving experience, knowing all this brave rhino mom has been through. Mix this in with a huge dollop of joy at seeing her healthy little one suckling greedily while ma grazed away calmly and you find your emotions on a real rollercoaster.
Rhino warrior Angie Goody took these lovely photographs of Thandi and her young calf Thembi enjoying a mud bath recently. We share the pictures with you today in honour of this new young life, a symbol of hope in the fight against rhino poaching.
