A new male calf was born at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary yesterday. Nandi (Rhino), donated some years ago by the Disney Animal Kingdom in Florida to the Rhino Fund Uganda, now had her fourth baby since she arrived at the sanctuary. The new addition returns the overall number of Rhinos at Ziwa Sanctuary of the (RFU) Rhino Fund Uganda to 15, after earlier in the year one of the adult males succumbed to injuries sustained during a fight with another rhino.
RFU (Rhino Fund Uganda) is a private NGO established for the purpose of re-introducing rhinos to Uganda. It’s has a Board of Directors supposed to oversee and guide the implementation and management of the RFU to achieve its aim of reintroducing Rhinos, a highly endangered species, back into the National Parks of Uganda like Murchison Falls or Kidepo Valley NPs through a breeding and release program.
