Day 77: Etosha National Park (~185 km inside the park)

Having had a distant glimpse of black rhinos on the night drive last night (...and also in the Ngororo Crater National Park in Tanzania) we were really keen to see some in day light. Sadly these beautiful animals are high on the endangered species list; there are only ~5,000 black rhinos left in the wild due to illegal poaching. We had a nice day in the park, with loads of sightings (including lions, elephants, giraffe, the endangered black faced impala and the rarely seen aardwolf) but sadly no rhino’s. Last night we saw a family of elephants having a mud bath by the water hole in Halali Rest Camp so decided to head there to see if there was any activity as the sun was setting. We were amazed when we got there to find 2 black rhino’s having a drink. We sat quietly and watched them for nearly an hour before they left the watering hole. After dinner we thought we’d go for another glimpse and we found 4 rhino’s (a mother, young calf and 2 males) and an elephant chilling by the watering hole. It was a truly amazing experience to see these special animals up close in their natural habitat.

The last bicorn...
----
Fortunately not by now, but the conservation status of Black Rhinos Diceros bicornis is critically. One of the four subspecies (ecotypes) has already gone extinct in its last known habitats in Northern Cameroon.
---
At the beginning of the 20th century the Black Rhino was the most numerous of the world's rhino species which at one stage could have numbered around 850,000. By 1960 the population was reduced to around 100,000 by hunting and habitat loss. Between 1960 and 1995 the remaining population collapsed due to large-scale poaching, numbers dropping below 2,500 individuals in the wild.
---
The last comprehensive survey was conducted in 2010 - numbers have slightly increased to 4,880 Black Rhinos. More than 96 % of these occur in just four countries... There's still hope!

This is Arthur the White Rhino. When Arthur was one month old poachers killed his mother in front of him. He tried to protect her body from the poachers but they hacked him with a machete severely injuring his spine and right front leg. He was found lying next to his mother’s body. The pictures are hard to look at and they make me a little sick every time I see them, but it is crucial for everyone to know what is happening to these animals.
Arthur was lucky enough to be rescued by @careforwild . Founded by Petronel Nieuwoudt in 2001, Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary is the biggest orphan rhino orphanage and sanctuary in the world. Arthur has had to undergo several procedures to save his life but he is recovering. You don’t have to spend long with these animals to know that they experience emotions just as we do, and that they miss their mothers terribly.
After finding out about Arthur I began talking with @careforwild to come up with a way to help. In the wild these baby rhino would snuggle up to their mothers for warmth at night. The nights are arguably when they miss their mothers the most. The folks at care for wild heat the Bomas that they keep the babies in to keep them warm and as happy as possible.
The heating bill is roughly 250 USD a month. So this is going to be my goal. I’ve started a gofundme account- gofundme.com/j4fjr-orphan-rhino-rescue I’ve already paid for the first month, and I am going to do whatever I can to cover the months moving forward, but I will likely need help. So if you’re reading this and you feel like helping keep some baby rhinos warm please donate. Any amount helps. If you can’t donate I understand, there are other ways to help:
1. Repost this so other people can see it
2. Follow @careforwild so you can be aware of what’s happening and help spread the word about their cause
Finally, to my loved ones who always tell me that I am a notoriously difficult person to buy a present for. This is what I want moving forward - A donation to my “Baby Rhino warming” project.
Thank you to anyone who took the time to read all of this, I appreciate you.

The first APU canine was introduced in Kruger National Park in 2010.
Many were skeptical that could successfully work amid the Big Five.
Ngweyna, who's name means crocodile , proved them wrong.
Today, there are no less than 50 APU dogs throughout Kruger.
They are a highly sought after addition to every APU.
FFR supports HESC and OPC APU canines.
To keep them going, and assure the safety of our , go to fightforrhinos.com to donate.

Rhino bought, rhino sold..with promise of cure, to the wealthy and old. Rhino hunted, Poisoned, tagged, stripped of horn. Rhino displayed for trophies on walls. Under surveillance and guard from the moment they’re born. To trade, Oh the shame of it all humanity’s greed. Ranger vs poacher, Politican vs NGO- fighting in the bush, fighting the status quo. Drones and poison, armies, shoot-to-kill; How much longer?..TUNZA! CONSERVE!

Das Indische Panzernashorn. Leider sind auch Nashörner vom Aussterben bedroht. Die Internationale Rote Liste der bedrohten Tier- und Planzenarten stuft das Indische Panzernashorn als gefährdet ein. Ich bin nicht oft in Tierparks aber jedes mal wenn ich einen besuche frage ich mich, ob diese zum Tierschutz, der Arterhaltung und der Wissensvermittlung beitragen oder einfach Tiere einsperren. Darüber streiten sich ja die Fachleute. Ich muss ehrlich gestehen, dass bei manchen Tieren das schlechte Gefühl wirklich überwog. Was nicht heißen soll, dass es mir bei den anderen Tieren egal war. Seid ihr oft in Tierparks?

The rhino population in Africa has fallen by more than 95 percent since 1900, to just 21,000 southern white rhinos and 5,000 black rhinos; 80 percent of those animals are in South Africa’s game reserves and on ranches. In a response to the dire situation that is facing rhinos in Africa, with rhino poaching at an all-time high, concerned conservationists teamed together to create Rhinos Without Borders (@rhinowb). RWB plans to relocate 100 white rhinos from South Africa to safe havens in Botswana, where poaching is almost non-existent. Writer, @ToddPitock, and I joined the first convoy of 15 rhinos to make the 800-mile journey by road from Free State, South Africa to their new home in the Okavango Delta.

Regrann from @nrt_kenya - It took seven hours but Loijipu finally got in his crate (on the right) voluntarily to start his next chapter! This little black rhino was rescued from Sera Rhino Sanctuary just under two years ago, after being abandoned by his mother. He was hand reared at the nearby @r.e.s.c.u.e Sanctuary in Namunyak Community Conservancy, and on the 6th June he returned to Sera to be a wild rhino once again. The process will be gradual, and he’ll be closely monitored to make sure he’s healthy and settling in. He brings the Sera Rhino Sanctuary population to 13. #rhino #blackrhino #rewild #returntothewild #communityconservation #seraconservancy #retetielephants #savetherhino eafricansafaris.com - #regrann

Cula dari 6 ekor badak hitam di potong di Taman Nasional Zakouma. Prosedur ini dilakukan oleh dokter hewan berpengalaman yang memastikan bahwa pemotongan cula ini aman dan tidak menyakiti para badak. Tahap demi tahap direncanakan melalui penelitian yang matang. Saat ini hanya tersisa sekitar 5,000 ekor badak hitam di alam liar. Dan populasi mereka terus menurun karena maraknya perburuan cula badak. Pemotongan cula badak ini bertujuan untuk mengurangi resiko sasaran perburuan cula badak untuk menjaga kelangsungan hidup badak. .

“Dubai” the White Rhino
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Meet “Dubai", a Southern White Rhino that I photographed at the Nariobi Safari Walk in Kenya. The name 'rhinoceros' means ‘nose horn’ and comes from the Greek words ‘rhino’ (nose) and ‘ceros’ (horn). There are five different species of rhinos, they are: Black Rhinos, White Rhinos, Indian Rhinos, Javan Rhinos and Sumatran Rhinos. Despite their names, White and Black Rhinos are actually grey, and there are two different types of White Rhinos: the Northern White and the Southern White. The White Rhino is the second largest land mammal after the elephant and the largest of all rhino species. When "Sudan" the last male Northern White Rhino, died earlier this year (March 2018) it took the subspecies to the brink of extinction with only two others remaining in the wild - Sudan's daughter, "Najin" and his granddaughter, "Fatu". Both female. Their near extinction is due to decades of illegal poaching for rhino horn with most of the demand coming from China and Vietnam. Rhinos have been around for over 50 million years and though they are built for survival, they can not survive against international criminal gangs of poachers. We must act now to end both ivory and rhino horn poaching and only a concerted global effort will stop this illegal trade. #savetherhino
