It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the death of the female white rhino poaching survivor named Hope on 14 November 2016.
Wilderness Foundation Africa was one of the organizations that supported her care and attempts at recovery through the Forever Wild Rhino Protection Initiative, with support from Medivet. That she survived this long is testament to the caring team of veterinary professionals and conservationists who believed that her survival symbolized hope in the face of the ongoing rhino poaching crisis. The various organizations and individuals that helped are gratefully appreciated. RIP Hope.
