If you’re looking for a unique and meaningful gift for your friends and loved ones this Christmas, why not support the rhino relocation project? It is reported that the Rhino Orphanage based in the Limpopo Province has been gifted 4 800 hectares of land to use for rehabilitation of the species.

This prompted the orphanage to call on donors for support in making this a reality as the costs are huge to construct new bomas, camps and overnight rooms.

The orphanage is currently located on 80 hectares, but luckily, the 4 800 hectares of pristine land, will provide “plentiful grazing, browsing and an endless supply of natural water”.

“It means freedom for the rhino orphans at an earlier age, growing wilder and stronger, living like they were supposed to before our own species took away everything,” the official website states.

“Here they will be safe, free to breed and help save a species which is balancing on the brink of extinction.”

The team plans on revamping the current buildings into a milk kitchen, a clinic, a dedicated arrival room, facilities for their passionate and dedicated carers and anti-poaching team, water provisions and more.

Your Christmas gift will therefore enable the orphanage to give the species their own “a paradise”.
