The morning of 20 August marked a period of heartbreak – both human and animal – when the antipoaching team of Aquila Private Game Reserve discovered that poachers had attacked three of the six resident Rhinos; killing one and leaving the others in critical condition. The injured male who lost a horn to the poachers was none other than ABSA, the first Rhino to be reintroduced to the Western Cape 250 years since they were shot out by hunters, and the father of the first two rhino babies to be born here since. Perhaps even more heartbreaking is the fact that the other injured rhino who was found with a poisoned dart in her shoulder, is one of ABSA’s calves. Due to kind hearts, quick actions and generous hands, the young female – who was not dehorned – survived and had enough strength to stand watch over her father, but despite man’s greatest of efforts to save him, ABSA suffered a huge loss of blood and possible internal injuries and after five days, the majestic boy gave up his fight and passed away on the morning of the 25 August. Despite best efforts to keep their animals safe from poachers, the Aquila Private Game Reserve suffered a huge loss – and South Africa is crying with them. As a sign of support and in order to take a stand against such cruelty, Groupon is asking you to donate R50 to The Aquila Rhino Fund. Since actions speak louder than words – and action must be taken to prevent such cruelty – your donations will go towards the fight against poaching and the guarantee of a safe future for South Africa’s precious wildlife. For those wishing to donate toward the Aquila Rhino Fund, an account has been set up for contributions. Funds will be used to finance the improvement and increase of trained antipoaching personnel and the purchase of antipoaching equipment such as bullet proof vests, night vision apparatus, and containers for satellite antipoaching, veterinary offices, increased security and vet fees.
