Help our work with the Kariega Foundation to provide education programmes in the surrounding communities and to support the Kariega anti-poaching unit by becoming a Helping Rhinos adopter Mthetho from just £5 a month.
Adopting Mthetho also makes a fantastic gift for your friend, loved one, relative or colleague.
On 2nd March 2012 Kariega Game Reserve, located in South Africa’s Eastern Cape was targeted by rhino poachers. Thandi was one of three rhinos attacked that night, and the only survivor. Her recovery, although long and at many times undoubtedly painful, and having already gone on to have two calves, in April 2019 Thandi gave birth to Mthetho.
Thandi's third 'miracle baby', Mthetho is living proof that every rhino matters. We are confident that Mthetho will grow up to be as strong as her mum and will now doubt prove to be just as a great a mother as Thandi has proved to be.
YOUR ADOPTION WILL HELP MTHETHO
By adopting Mthetho you are enabling us to roll out conservation education programmes in the areas surrounding Kariega Game Reserve, reducing the likelihood of community members turning to poaching.
You will also help us to keep the Kariega anti-poaching unit up and running, enabling them to keep rhinos safe within their area of operation.
Your adoption of Mthetho will help to support one of the most iconic rhino families in the world and ensure that Mthetho continues Thandi's legacy for generations to come.
A small percentage of your adoption will be used to cover administration and operating costs
