    GL events South Africa's Learnership program and Rhino conservation support

    In late 2016 GL events South Africa adopted a Rhino through Edu-Wize as part of our Learnership program, this program involved 53 learners. Little Delilah is a 9-month-old Sumatran Rhino and is only the second Rhino ever born in captivity in Indonesia. We are grateful that our monthly contribution aids in sustaining projects managed by the International Rhino Foundation.


    DELILAH’S STORY
    Delilah was born in the early morning hours of Thursday, May 12th at the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary in Way Kambas National Park, Indonesia. Her father, Andalas, was born at the Cincinnati Zoo on September 13, 2001 and came to Indonesia when he was six years old. Andatu’s mother, Ratu, was born in Way Kambas National Park, but wandered outside the park’s boundaries in 2005. Fortunately, she was rescued and brought to the Sanctuary for protection.

    Delilah is the second rhino ever born in captivity in Indonesia. She weighed approximately 45 pounds at birth and lives with her mother in a maternity boma within the tropical forest. She spends the day napping, walking around with her mother, mouthing the shrubbery, and enjoying long mud baths, which her mother digs. For now, she relies on her mother for 100% of her nutrition. As she grows, her keepers will begin introducing her to browse from more than two dozen different types of plants, some of which are relatives of the aromatic herbs that people use in cooking and others that are toxic to human beings, but part of a Sumatran rhino’s natural diet. When fully grown, Delilah will weigh more than half-a-ton. For now, she is an adorable ball of energy that loves wallowing and exploring her new environment.

    There are fewer than 100 Sumatran rhinos left in the world
