Successful dehorning of Mankwe Rhino
June 07, 2017
The shockingly cruel acts of Oct. 10th 2014 which left two beautiful Rhino Cows and one unborn calf brutally slaughtered, have changed Mankwe Wildlife Reserve forever. Not only has the team at Mankwe had to deal with shockingly cruel devastation but they’ve had to rapidly ramp guarded patrols, deploy the services of vets, conservationists and they themselves work 24x7. The disruption has continued year over year as they annually take on the very risky exercise of dehorning the surviving Rhino’s and whilst protecting the Rhino put their own lives at risk as they airlift and store the Rhino horn offsite (at an undisclosed location). Now as Mankwe finds news ways to safe guard and protect their Rhino 24x7x365 I’m appealing to all of us who hold Mankwe dear to help fund the professional anti-poaching unit, the newly formed K-9 unit, the necessary equipment such as Thermal image camera’s for night vision (infrared identification of human at night), Binoculars and Spot Lights. (the dehorning and anti-poaching activites have been financially devasting). Funds raised here will make a substantial difference in these ongoing efforts to protect the Mankwe Rhino and each and every penny will be put to special use! In loving memory of Patrol, Winnie and Cheeky-Cow!
