It is with great sadness that I write this blog. A little over a month ago we darted one of our white rhino male bulls for ear notching, DNA/Blood sample collection and and micro-chipping - all anti-poaching efforts. This same rhino was slaughtered this week at the hand of poachers. Him and our breeding bull. They were both darted and their horns hacked off.
We are devastated to say the least. The police investigation is currently under way and we can only hope that some form of justice will be served. This is a huge loss to the Amakhala Game Reserve.
