Daisy, a baby rhino, and Modjadji, a baby zebra, have become the best of friends while recovering in the ICU at Care For Wild Sanctuary, an RRF grantee. Both babies were rescued from the wild with life-threatening conditions. Modjadji was found clinging to life after heavy rains. She developed severe anemia and needed a blood transfusion from another zebra in order to survive. About a month later, Daisy was found during a routine operation in South Africa’s Kruger National Park. She was just 12 hours old and extremely weak due to a severe umbilical infection that could have ended her life. She joined Modjadji at the sanctuary, who was happy to have some company during her recovery.
