Thandi, a white rhino who survived a brutal poaching attack in 2012 that left two male rhinos dead, gave birth within the wilds of South Africa’s Kariega Game Reserve on 15 January. Photographer and filmmaker Adrian Steirn travelled to the Eastern Cape this week to find Thandi and film the miracle calf that should never have been. Watch Thandi’s story here: news24.com
