Vivek Menon, Executive Director, WTI, and Regional Director – South Asia, IFAW, said, "This is a very special moment for all of us. The situation of rhinos across the world has been depressing, with so many poached for their horns in the past year. In this seemingly-bleak scenario, the instances like this birth are what keep us optimistic and spirited to do more."
IFAW's support for wildlife rehabilitation in South Africa has ensured that at least two rhino rehabilitated and then released into the wild have successfully bred on reserves in the region.
