Poaching might seem like a problem of the past, reserved only for the most brutish and hulking barbarians, but it's still a very big problem today. Animals are gunned down so that the attackers can sell their valuable horns, tusks, and more. The lives of these animals sadly mean nothing to them.
The story of Thandi — an African rhino who was found suffering — and her journey to recovery and new life is one that needs to be heard across the world. It will break your heart and inspire you at the same time.video-player-present

It's impossible to imagine how any person can go through life after inflicting such unnecessary pain and suffering on another creature, but they do, and it needs to be stopped.
As well as a touching new beginning for her mother, Thandi's baby is a symbol of new life for the critically endangered wild animals.
