The Care for Wild Africa Rhino Sanctuary, located in Mpumalanga, South Africa, is dedicated to the protection of rhinos and other endangered species against poaching. The facility features a treatment and care center where animals are rehabilitated until they are healthy enough to be returned to the wild.
Although Care for Wild Africa specializes in the rehabilitation of rhinos, they also rescue orphaned, abandoned, injured or displaced reptiles, mammals and indigenous birds. Certified veterinarians regularly visit the center to check up on the animals, while volunteers keep the facilities clean and the animals fed.
The center was established by Petronel Nieuwoudt, the former captain of the South African Endangered Species Protection Unit and an incredible lady who is extremely passionate about her work.

SOUND ON! 💚🦏 Orphan rhinos Benjamin, Ribbon and Lazuli are mad for milk like most babies! They can finish a 2L bottle of milk in about 10 seconds! Baby rhinos will normally drink milk from their moms until the age of 16 months but some of the orphans here at the sanctuary remain on milk for a little longer given their trauma and often malnourished state on admission.
