The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre focuses on the conservation of rare, vulnerable or endangered animals.
Back in the summer of 2014 Thandi’s Fund Raiser as we were known then was touched by the story of orphaned rhino calf Gertjie that had been rescued by HESC after he was found weak and distressed lying next to his mother that had been killed by poachers. “The cost of raising these orphaned calves is so much we wanted to help where we could” said Angie Goody. 1Lt costs R14.95 X 25 = R373.75 per day (£20 GBP) A growing calf will drink this in one day split between 6 different feeds.
£600 was raised and donated to HESC by holding children’s crafts at Curraghs wildlife park on the Isle of Man over 6 days in the summer holidays.
