For the New Year - Some Good News for Rhinos!

We wish to join Far Horizons and congratulate the team at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary and Rhino Fund in Uganda, on the birth of a new baby rhino on the night of 11th January 2010.

Bella, Atta's Membership Manager also joins in congratulations to her name sake Bella, one of the Southern White Rhinos at the sanctuary, who has been showing signs of an imminent birth ever since early December and was seen recently chasing away her previous calf, the 2 year old Augustu.

Later that morning, when rangers went to take the daily 'rhino roll call' they carefully approached Bella, to see the new addition nursing happily with her mother. The sex of the new baby has been confirmed as female, bringing a much needed balance to the proportion of male to females in this new generation of rhinos on the Sanctuary.

The total number of rhinos at Ziwa is now 11, including 6 adults, 3 adolescents, 1 six month old calf born last year, as well as this latest addition!

Visitors to Uganda can enjoy rhino tracking at the Sanctuary, as well as other activities including a birding canoe safari with a high chance of seeing the famous Shoebill.
