This only drives my determination to advocate for these magnificent animals in any way possible in the hopes that our children will get the opportunity to experience the majesty of a rhino.” ~ Nirvana, University of Edinburgh
“I have really enjoyed the two rhino courses. They were really engaging and informative and I feel like I am now much more aware of the wider complications when it comes to looking after wild rhinos and managing their population. There is so much more to consider than I first thought, and I now understand how vital the vets’ role is in protecting this iconic and unique species.” ~ Jessica, University of Edinburgh
