The Rhino Situation – seeking out the “positives”…

Blog | 20th September 2013

People are naturally very quick to focus on tragic and negative news, however, there is so much positive action taking place, especially for rhinos.

Thanks to Picket Chabwedzeka and his anti-poaching team for this rescue, and thanks to Victoria falls Wildlife Trust for taking care of this fish eagle.

Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust

10 days ago this juv African Fish Eagle was brought into our High-care rehabilitation centre by the team at Nakavango Conservation Programme. He was starving, emaciated and found lying half dead next to the dam, known to be where a resident pair of fish eagles live on the game reserve of The Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel.

Thanks so much to Rod from the Bream Farm for donating the fish! 🐟

Once we know he can fly properly and will be able to survive in the wild we will release him. We think it will be quite soon! 😃
