Rhino sanctuary - July to October 2009 summary

The 3 black rhino imported from the Czech Republic are in good condition. We are still supplementing their feed as they have had so much to adjust to and the dry season has been so prolonged.  We bring in lucerne from Kenya and add horse-nuts, bananas and carrots to their daily browse.  The tsetse targets are re-sprayed every 2 months
