South Africa:
Notorious Ndlovu Rhino Poaching Gang loses Appeal - will serve 25 years in Jail.

Three convicted poachers of the notorious Ndlovu gang failed in their bid to appeal their 25 year sentences. The High Court in Makhanda (Grahamstown) dismissed their appeal on all counts on Tuesday, 24 November 2020.

They are responsible for killing at least 13, but possibly as many as 100 Rhinos for their Horns.

Every December, we load our truck to the brim with whatever The Rhino Orphanage needs most, for special Xmas spoilings! We work off their wish-list, and itโ€™s always personal challenge to see how many of these life-saving items we can supply.

This year, the Rhino Babies need, as always, loads of Protexin โ€“ a probiotic supplement that saves lives by fixing stressed Rhino Baby Tummies. We need to take at least 10 x 1kg tubs, as they use quite a lot, especially with newly orphaned Rhino Babies. (+-USD 35ea).

Also on their list is a pole syringe, which we can purchase complete for around ZAR4000 (USD 250). This handy piece of veterinary hardware is used to inject medicine when it is dangerous to get too close to a distressed animal. It is on every true Rehabโ€™s secret wish list. We would like to help keep both the staff and animals safe by supplying this awesome piece of equipment.

An aluminium drip stand is required, to hold life-saving IV hydration fluid; industrial wheelbarrows to clean up after the adorable little grey unicorns, and cart dry food around. An LED spotlight will help with night-time rescues and emergencies. A decent construction-type lamp costs around ZAR 2000 (USD125).

As usual, there is a myriad other things required to keep the babies alive and make it easier for the staff to care for them. This includes special veterinary wound wrap and disinfectant, jugs and buckets for mixing milk and medicine, dust masks, fly bait stations, and loads of laboratory consumables. General paper wipes (garage rolls), 1-ply Toilet Paper, washing powder for Rhino Baby blankets, all cleaning products โ€“ all of these things are used on an on-going basis. Very important, is the de-worming and anti-tick treatments for the anti-poaching dogs, keeping the ones who protect the Rhino Babies healthy too!

Last but not least, we would obviously like to also take the angel caregivers some treats for Xmas, to thank them for their tireless devotion in keeping these precious babies alive.

Please help make our Xmas wish for the Rhino Orphans come true, by making a Donation here.

Over the past 5 years, Wild Heart Wildlife Foundation has supplied Millions of Randsโ€™ worth of Capital Equipment, Medicine, Food and Consumables to The Rhino Orphanage. We believe in their passion, and that every Rhino Baby deserves to be given the very best chance of survival. We will continue to support The Rhino Orphanage in every way possible, so that they can focus on what they do best โ€“ saving Rhino lives.

When it comes to Wildlife, one can never know enough. Recently, Wild Heart Wildlife Foundation hosted an interactive course for First Responders in Wildlife Rescue. The course is presented by passionate, dedicated Wildlife Rehabber, Michelle Watson who runs Wildlife Rescue, Johannesburg. Michelle Watson is one of four Wildlife Rehabbers in South Africa certified by the IWRC (International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council). This course is also endorsed by the IWRC.

The venue for this intense, hands-on, two-day training was the beautiful Eagles View Guest House and Conference Centre - owned by one of our local community members and generous WHWF supporters.

Targeted to Urban Wildlife Rescue, the content focused on life-saving techniques including capture, assessment, examination, hydration, stabilization, splinting of broken bones, bandaging broken wings and wound treatment. Because animals cannot tell you what is wrong, it is crucial that rescuers have the correct knowledge to be able to assist the animals immediately, thus saving precious lives.

The information and knowledge shared (and gained), was of an exceptionally high standard. Education is key to understanding, and this kind of knowledge empowers us to better help those who have no voice.

WHWF sponsored some veterinary consumable goodies to help equip the course attendants for fieldwork. It is our small way to say thank you for caring enough to do something about an injured animal.

With great appreciation to our friend Zenobia Culhane who sponsored the food for the course, for all attendants.

Wild Heart Wildlife Foundation is managing a life-saving Project that will ensure that several captive-born lions are given a future at new forever homes. They can never be released, and have to be placed in sanctuaries. You can read more here: wildheartwildlifefoundation.org/life-4-lions

The #Life4Lions Project entails certain Veterinary Procedures like Darting, Vasectomies, Veterinary care, Micro-Chipping, DNA sampling, Vaccinations and Health Checks, Relocation and Transport of several captive lions, to safe, ethical, forever home sanctuaries. It includes site visits to ensure compliance and suitability of all proposed sanctuaries, with associated travel costs.

Currently, the lions are in a safe, ethical, non-breeding facility, but their numbers are exceeding the recommended saturation levels as instructed by Nature Conservation. Consequently, we have received instruction from the Authorities to find the excess lions suitable forever homes, rather than risking the lions being euthanized.

Wild Heart Wildlife Foundation will be completing this project in stages, with the second stage ensuring the safety of another two magnificent male lions, as well as the transport of 6 lions to their new forever home.

Phase 2 also includes building 6 x travel crates for lions. (New crates cost +-ZAR12k each, and we'd rather spend that kind of money directly on the lions).

#Kijana (Boy) and #Lijana (Young) will be sterilized so that they cannot be exploited in future.

All other required veterinary procedures will be done at the same time. The total cost for the SECOND phase is estimated to be ZAR 27 500.00 (USD 1 750.00).

The entire #Life4Lions project is geared towards ensuring the health of all the lions and making sure they have as happy a life as possible in suitable permanent, ethical sanctuaries.

We cannot save them all - but we can help these Lions. Will you help us make this possible?

Phase Two of #WHWF's #Life4Lions Project is an important milestone in Giving Lions a Brighter Future, and preventing any possible future exploitation - providing 6 captive-born, parent-reared Lions with their forever home in a semi-wild environment with no human interaction.

The funding will be used to perform vasectomies (and all other required veterinary procedures) on two lions, #Kijana and #Lijana, before moving them to their forever home, together with another group of 4 juvenile lions. Funding will further used to build 6 x Lion Transport Crates as per National Regulations, to ensure safe transport to their new homes.
