The Zululand Rhino Orphanage is looking for someone to join the team as a rhino carer!


South Africa’s Zululand Rhino Orphanage was born out of tragedy when a regional rhino orphanage was brutally attacked by poachers on 20th February 2017. Following much deliberation, the facility took the difficult decision to close, due to the ongoing security threat. There was an urgent need to re-home the orphans, and so the Zululand Conservation Trust took on the challenge to shoulder the costs and immediately began working against the clock to create a facility for these displaced animals.
