Barberton Mines has partnered with Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary (CfWRS) and adopted three recently orphaned rhino calves for the 2021 calendar year. Their names are Genesis, Ruby and Yster. Our goal is to provide financial support for their monthly care until they reach maturity and can be integrated back into larger herds.
CfWRS aims to develop the existing rehabilitation centre into a secure stronghold which will eventually accommodate 200 black and white rhinos in a viable, secure population. It works directly with local communities to create environmental protection and sustainable solutions into youth and community development programmes that provide jobs, conservation training and educational opportunities.
The rehabilitation of the rhinos includes fully equipped and secure facilities, feeding, medication and supplements, and veterinary services to ensure the protection and survival of this endangered species.
