Slight engine mount failure for the generator - the original aluminum mounting bracket failed around the bolt holes! The team discussed next steps to #design and #develop a new steel #generator mount, a center bearing support for the coupler, and adding active cooling. Shouldn't have a problem moving forward :)

"All three new orphan rhinos have bonded with Zac to create a new rhino family!

It's important to @careforwild that they reduce the human imprint made on orphan rhino calves. This is why we introduce newly orphaned calves to other calves as soon as they have stabilised and are settled on the bottle. It's imperative that even though we will always be there to care for them or tend to their wounds, that they don't look to humans for confidence and companionship - instead we believe they should look for that within their own rhino family, which is what we have been successful in creating.

It humbles us to see the older rhinos which came in as orphans still in their rhino crash which was created over 5 years ago!
All the new orphans have settled in tremendously well and we sometimes wonder if there is an unspoken understanding between them of what they have had to endure at the hands of poachers. ***We must stress that even though we accept volunteers, Care for Wild is NOT a petting zoo and interaction with the rhinos is limited. Other than feeding times and when wound treatment is needed, the rhinos strictly have no human contact throughout the day and night. However, we do have armed guards and rhino monitors watching over all our rhinos from a distance at all times.*** #disunitythefilm #rhino #rhinopoaching #southafrica #rhinohorn #babyrhino #cuteness #southafrica #illegal #trade #vietnam #china #notjustanotherrhinofilm #crisisinconservation"
