A few months ago orphan Rhino Lottie was found in Pilanesberg (South Africa) next to her mother’s dead body. Despite her trauma, things are going well with little Lottie. All this thanks to the good care of The Rhino Orphanage!
In the meantime, a nice project has emerged for Wings for Animals: coordinating the transport of knitted and crocheted blankets by women from all over the world. These blankets keep the rhino orphans warm at night. To save costs, our dear colleagues transport blankets from the Netherlands or even from New York (via our crewcenter) to the crew hotel in Johannesburg. There the blankets are picked up by several (rhino) orphanages. Besides blankets the ladies of ‘Blankets for Baby Rhinos’ make fun cuddles for the young animals of Solidearth Meerkat Rehab and Rescue. Furthermore, their creations are sold and with the profits, projects such as these are supported. Thanks to everyone who contributes to this beautiful project!
