Below is a video of Thandi’s journey from being poached to having her baby. There are some rather graphic images at the beginning so if you are squeamish about animal suffering, it may be better not to watch. It does, however have a happy ending as Thandi survived and went on to become a mum.

Thandi lives at the Kariega Nature Reserve, very near where I come from, which is why I have been so invested in her story.
