SEHA – A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A RHINO POACHING SURVIVOR

Standing in the corner of the boma, Seha instinctively knew these two legged creatures approaching him weren’t the same ones that attacked him so brutally a couple of weeks ago. In fact, they were the ones with the healing hands; in those hands laid the promise of indeed creating hope from hurt.

A very despondent owner, who initially wanted to put down the animal because of the severity of the injuries, accepted STS’s offer of assistance in rescuing and treating the animal.
