I'm Petronel Nieuwoudt, and I rehabilitate baby Rhinos that have lost their mothers to poaching. Ask me anything!
Hi Reddit, I hear that you love rhinos! We’ve just received a new 12 week old white rhino that was found lying in her mom’s blood with an injured leg, and completely covered in ticks and abscesses.

Please help us save her from this terrible ordeal by spreading awareness of our cause, which can help to raise the necessary funds needed to keep her healthy and safe. If you can help us raise enough funds, we will name her Reddit as a thank you for saving her life!
We’re currently caring for a number of Rhinos, all of which lost their mothers to poaching. At present, 3 rhinos are being killed every day in South Africa, with over 1000 killed this year alone. This figure is continuously growing, with 1004 Rhinos killed last year, 668 in 2012, 448 in 2011, and 333 in 2010.
Please help us save these animals and feel free to ask me anything!
