A new episode of the Hello Animal Talks podcast is available for your listening pleasure. Jennie interviews Arrie van Deventer in our latest Hello Animal Talks podcast.
Arrie Van Deventer is the founder of The Rhino Orphanage, the very first rhino orphanage in the world, and his story is riveting. It was really fascinating to hear about the work The Rhino Orphanage is doing to save these beautiful baby rhinos, and I think you will find yourself running the gamut of emotions as you listen to his story.

The Rhino Orphanage is a registered non-profit company based in the Limpopo Province and was founded by Arrie van Deventer in 2012. The orphanage is the first specialist, dedicated, non-commercial centre that cares for orphaned and injured baby rhinos with the only aim of releasing them back into the wild. It was created as the result of a lack of a specialized place for rearing baby rhinos who have been orphaned as a consequence of the current poaching crisis which feeds the illegal trade in horns.
