The approach of a young male #rhino on a recent #wildlife photographic #safari I hosted. #rhinos are severely endangered and our days of seeing this #endangeredspecies is fast running out, unless the world wakes up and starts saving them from savage money hungry poaching syndicates sending the horn of the murdered animal to predominantly China and Vietnam.

This is one of my favorite examples of how form follows function. In addition to straightening his nose, I performed several maneuvers to change the shape and positioning of the cartilage that shapes the nasal tip. The result is a significant improvement in both aesthetics and breathing!
Only 1 week after rhinoplasty and our patient is looking great. There is still significant swelling, which will go down over the next several weeks.

Meet Apollo, the newest member of our herd! This delightful little chap was rescued last month, after he lost his mother (a well-known wild black rhino named Amoy) to anthrax poisoning. He was just six months old, so we knew we had to act fast before he fell victim to predators.
Rescuing Apollo was no easy task — he may be small, but he’s very spunky! As soon as he sussed out our presence, he was on the move. It’s worth reading the full account of the rescue on our website, but what followed was a nail-biting race though Tsavo West as the wily little calf gave us the runaround for several miles. Thanks to the coordinated (and indefatigable!) efforts of our teams, KWS, and Tsavo Trust, working on the ground and in the air, we were finally able to get little Apollo.
He was flown to our nearby Kaluku Field HQ, where our experienced Keepers were ready and waiting. Although Apollo was initially wary of his new home and didn’t want anyone approaching him, the team won him over with the time-tested trick of giving him a tummy rub with a broom. It wasn’t long before Apollo was eagerly following his Keepers around, happily slurping down his bottle and luxuriating in his specially created mud bath.
We are so grateful to everyone who dedicated themselves to saving little Apollo — every rhino life is precious, parctucularly when you consider the fact that just 745 black rhino remain in Kenya. You can play a part in his future by adopting him. To learn more, click our link in bio 🦏
