Dr. Leslie Glassbrenner, of Gentle Dentistry of East Aurora, traveled to South Africa on an Eco-Safari organized by the Earth Organization to a wildlife reserve and adopted a White Rhino to help save them from extinction.

Buffalo, New York (PRWEB) March 16, 2010 -- Last August, Dr. Leslie Glassbrenner, of Gentle Dentistry of East Aurora, traveled to South Africa on an Eco-Safari organized by the Earth Organization to a wildlife reserve and adopted a White Rhino to help save them from extinction.

Having few natural predators other than humans, rhinos are killed for their keratin-containing horns, which is used in expensive medicines. Registered as ‘vulnerable’ by the International Rhino Foundation, the Southern White Rhinos are the most abundant species, with about 17,500 remaining in the wild, but have been steadily on the decline and are in danger of extinction in our lifetime.

Lawrence Anthony, owner of the Thula-Thula reserve, asked Dr. Glassbrenner if she would be interested in adopting a baby white rhino to be a companion to Heidi, the only rhino left on the reserve.

Without hesitation, she agreed to bring Thabo to the reserve. Tragically, before baby Thabo arrived, Heidi was killed by poachers wanting her horns. Two months later,on October 25, 2009 baby Thabo arrived at Thula-Thula after a fourteen hour trip.

Thula-Thula acquired the rhino after the one-day-old calf was found alone and badly dehydrated in a Free State game reserve.

Thula-Thula will care for him until he is old enough to get released into the wild. “We do not believe in keeping captive animals,” said owner Lawrence Anthony, “The only good cage is an empty cage.”

To aid in his release, the search began for a baby female rhino. The search was successful.

Baby Ntombi was rescued after her mother got killed in front of her and
