Information Library: Adopt/Foster an animal


We are extremely grateful for the fostering of our rhinos, and of course your ongoing efforts in gaining more support towards The Rescued Rhinos @ HESC.

While we would love to be able to fulfil your request to meet your fostered rhino, it unfortunately goes against our philosophy of not allowing interactions between man and animal at HESC. Although we are a facility specialising in captive animals, we support the global initiative to stand against human-animal interaction for commercial gain or entertainment. We try our level best to provide an environment as close as possible to the natural one in which the animals should be living.

Other reasons for limiting human interaction to only core caregivers include minimising the risk of human borne illnesses, and a necessity to not jeopardise possible future animal releases into the wild.

Of course you will have the opportunity to photograph your fostered rhino from the comfort of the game drive vehicle on the day of your visit to HESC.

I trust that you will appreciate our stance on this regard.

Thank you and kind regards
