The Rhino Orphanage
Drawing from a lifetime of experience in having successfully raised over two hundred rhino orphans, Karen Trendler builds an experimental orphanage like no other facility in the world. Designed exclusively for victims of the current brutal poaching crisis, the orphanage takes in young rhinos that, before now, would have been left for dead. Under Karen?s guidance, the team sensitively begins to rebuild the shattered lives of rhinos who have witnessed their mothers being butchered. Veterinarians, caregivers and surrogate mothers, who initially sleep next to the traumatized youngsters for reassurance, provide vital, hands-on attention. After their efforts, the team must wait and see if the rhino orphans can successfully integrate into their new family units.
