Saving Rhino, one Orphan at a time - By Paul Oxton (Wild Heart)
 
At a Game Reserve in South Africa a female Rhino was ruthlessly killed by poachers leaving a female Rhino calf alone without her Mother.
The baby Rhino was taken to a Game Reserve’s sanctuary to save this little girls life and try to help her adapt to a new home.
 
 
A local dairy company called ‘Clover’ was kind enough to sponsor and donate as much milk as this baby needed, which turned out to be over 10 litres a day, hence her new name “Clover”.

Clover had to spend a lot of time in a boma that is designed to keep new arrivals separated and safe from other animals, but sadly Clover became so lonely, stressed and depressed that she developed ulcers in her stomach which could potentially be fatal to such a young Rhino calf.
