Have you seen our beautiful baby rhino t-shirts and caps? Kids at a school in Dubai have!
Baby Rhino Rescue ambassadors launched our stunning range of hand embroidered t-shirts at their school market. At the same time, they spoke about why baby rhinos are orphans and how buying a t-shirt helps the babies. There are many proud kids and parents wearing their new garb knowing that they have done something good in the world today.
Want to do the same at your kid’s school? If our ambassadors can do it, you can. Contact us to arrange a similar event in your community.

Hugs for rhinos
Kids care for baby rhinos.
Baby Rhino Rescue’s Ambassadors, Isaac and Eve, were invited to Dubai American Academy (DAA) to address their student council. Isaac and Eve were received by an incredibly enthusiastic
and supportive group of students from grade 3, 4, and 5 who were very eager to learn more about why rhinos are endangered.
Isaac pointed out the rhinos had survived on the planet for 55 millions years. However, because of the demand for rhino horn from Asia, poaching has severely dented rhino populations in Africa and much of Asia. Isaac explained that it was his wish to protect as many of this iconic species as possible. He presented some examples of how he and the other ambassadors were working
towards this goal. Without hesitation, DAA’s students offered their support and started thinking about ways to be involved.

World Rhino Day is the time to celebrate this majestic, prehistoric, keystone creature. Baby Rhino Rescue’s mission is to invite people to participate in saving the rhino from extinction. The Youth
Ambassador program appeals to young kids to do just that.
Speaking at their schools in Dubai and San Fransisco, Baby Rhino Rescue’s passionate and brave young ambassador’s rose to the occasion. In their own words they explained to their peers why rhinos should be saved from extinction.
Well done Ambassadors for having the courage to take the lead and for sharing your knowledge and ideas with your peers!

In order to learn more about rhino poaching, Isaac and Eve sat with Care for Wild Africa’s Director, Petronel Nieuwoudt, to discuss the problem. From this amazing woman, who has been fighting
rhino poaching and caring for orphaned baby rhinos for the past 16 years, they learned about the difficulties involved in caring and protecting them from imminent threat.
The interview was of great benefit to BRR’s ambassadors as they learnt directly from an expert in the field, who knows from experience, the challenges, successes and failures of caring for baby
rhinos, in the context of the international demand for their horns.
Thank you, Petronel, for your incredible work and for being a tremendous role model for people around the world!

BRR’s ambassadors, Isaac and Eve, spent 3 days at Care for Wild Africa sanctuary, to learn first hand what it takes to care for a rhino. The visit also gave them the opportunity to see how the work
they are doing benefits orphaned baby rhinos.
At the sanctuary, they learned about baby rhino diets, how to prepare milk and the intricacies of feeding baby rhinos; they discovered the differences in the social behavior between black and
white rhinos, the risks of infection that baby rhinos are exposed to and much more. They were also shown the huge effort required in making sure that these precious calves are kept safe and were
faced with thinking about what needs to be done to eventually return rhinos to the wild.
Both ambassadors were thrilled to meet the baby rhinos and to discover their individual, playful personalities. The baby rhinos – especially Twinkle and Lofo – were as intrigued by Isaac and Eve
and were very happy to be fed by them.
Reflecting on his time at Care for Wild Africa, Isaac said “what I enjoyed most was being face-to-face with a baby rhino calf because not many people have the opportunity to see one in person,
and it is highly endangered and not many people in the world know about the rhino.”
Evie said “I loved that you could feel what it is like to be a baby rhino…you get to feel what its like for a baby rhino to lose its Mom, and it makes me happy to see them to see them now in a lovely
