LIVE FOOTAGE

The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre is proud to partner with Africam to bring you
live footage from inside our rhino boma.

Tune in from the late afternoons through to early mornings each day (SAST: (South African Standard Time)
to see surrogate mom/big sister Esmé, along with rhino calves Thaba, Mango, Bula, Peter – and new addition Jellybean.

Pedi sheep Mielie and Liquorice are there too – and the gang goes about their daily business eating,
sleeping, receiving milk feeds, mud baths – and enjoying the odd playing session.

ANIMAL INTERACTION POLICY

HESC maintains a strict policy of no contact or interaction with animals kept on the property. Our policy is aligned with international trends based on animal ethics and welfare and is aimed at ensuring the safety and health of both animals and visitors. Our policy further endorses the right of animals to live a life without fear, which is often the consequence of close contact with humans with whom they are not acquainted. We avoid human-imprinting, whereby the animals will identify more with humans than with their own species and cause them to become problem animals once released.
