Dr. Will Fowlds, the wildlife vet that cared for Themba chronicles the story and events leading to the rhino’s death following the de-horning attack. Themba struggled to survive for 25 days.

Thandi not only survives the brutal attack. She heals from her life threatening injuries, is accepted back into a crash (a herd of rhino) and calves a baby rhino named Thembi—the Xhosa word for “hope”.

Every rhino counts in maintaining the diversity of the gene pool.
