Rhino Orphanage

Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage In South Africa Attacked By Poachers, Is Now Protected!

WAN recently shared a heartbreaking message from Allison Thomson of Outraged South African Citizens Against Poaching (OSCAP) that the Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, was attacked by poachers, tragically leaving several rhinos dead, care-givers severely beaten, and one young woman sexually assaulted.

An Indiegogo fundraising campaign was launched by an orphanage volunteer, Megan Richards, with a goal of reaching $55,000 USD, which would enable them to keep the remaining baby rhinos safe for one year.

WAN and Peace 4 Animals donated the final amount that the campaign needed to reach the orphanage’s goal of 55k. The baby rhinos are now safe for the year!
